After having received all the applications, we will select the companies that best suit each vertical, always following the criteria established in the programme. For this first selection, we will take into account -in addition to the project presented- other fundamental aspects such as the formation of the team and the working spirit.
During this process, the programme jury may contact any member of the team to resolve any issue that may arise.
After selecting the companies to go through from the first round, we will hold a Pitch Day with all of them, where we can learn more about the project and the personal characteristics of the people who make it up (If the health situation allows it, the Pitch Day will be held at Mestalla) During this day, the Innovation Programme jury will listen to all of the companies make a live pitch, followed by a round of questions. Specific instructions on this event will be explained to previously selected participants.
In this phase, the VCF INNOVATION HUB team will contact each company to study (if necessary) the specific conditions and final details of their incorporation. During this phase, the company may decline to participate in the programme in the event of not reaching an agreement with Valencia CF and, failing that, the jury may negotiate with other finalist companies to occupy the available place, as long as they have been present in the previous phase.
