The successful startups will initially receive €21K in return for 8% equity. Applications close on 8 February 2015 (Update – May 2023: The website seems to be out of use, and we therefore deactivated the original link).

Additionally, to raise awareness of the cohort, Oxygen & Fiedler Capital will tour across 11 cities in Central and Eastern Europe to meet the best startups from the region. Startups can meet the team, sign up for one-to-one sessions and hear advice about international investment, followed by networking drinks. The events are as follows:
