Digital Wine Communcations Conference to host WBIS Business Award Session in Montreux, Switzerland giving budding wine entrepreneurs the chance to pitch projects to an audience of industry shapers and potential partners.
WBIS was created by a small group of wine industry entrepreneurs that had an idea to create a platform for real innovation in the wine industry and to give new businesses opportunities to grow and develop. After two successful editions, WBIS has teamed up with DWCC to host the “#WBIS Pitch your Project” session during the forthcoming edition of DWCC held in Montreux, Switzerland.
The #WBIS Business Awards has been one of the key moments in the WBIS Programme and we’re thrilled to be taking this session to DWCC this year. The winning start up, assessed by a panel of accomplished entrepreneurs and industry experts for the level of innovation, focus on consumers needs, viability of the business model and the quality of the presentation will be given a special feedback session to discuss future opportunities for their business project as well as 2 free tickets for the 2015 Wine Business Innovation Summit.
If you have a project that you think could change the way the industry works, answers needs that aren’t already being addressed or is simply just a great idea, fill in the application form and you could be on stage on 1st November getting valuable feedback from some of the key people in the industry.
