The four winners of the 2018 CBS Startup application round were revealed during the ceremony at CBS Entrepreneurial day, the 27th of September. Before the ceremony, more than 30 start-ups had initially applied to become the recipients of the CBS Startup grants, ranging up to 75.000 DKK a grant.
Of the 30 start-ups who applied for the grants, nine were initially selected through a screening round at CSE. These nine start-ups were selected to pitch their idea in front of the CBS Startup board. Seven out of the nine start-ups were then selected to be nominated as the seven finalists in the CBS Startup competition. This meant that the cases of the seven start-ups were published online on a vote-platform where the public could vote for their favorite idea. This voting phase lasted from the beginning of September, up until the reveal of the four winners at the ceremony on Entrepreneurial Day at CBS. The four winners were the start-ups with the most votes on the platform. They received 75.000 kr. as well as the CBS Startup award to showcase their accomplishment.
