The top 10 finalists for the flagship startup and technology event did not feature any fintech startups.
The grand prize is a €200 000 syndicate investment by EstBAN and €10 000 cash prize from Latitude59. The grand final of the competition will take place on August 28 in Tallinn which can also be viewed online.
The top 10 startups to go through to the final round of the Latitude59 and EstBAN’s pitching competition are:

“We saw a lot of interest towards the pitching competition this year, which shows that despite the crisis and the prevailing uncertain situation, we still have very strong and active start-ups in the region. Looking at the level of the finalists of the competition, it can be said that with the right advice and support, we might see potential next unicorns,”
said Kristjan Raude, member of the board and syndicate leader of the Estonian Business Angels Network.
On August 13, the 10 finalists will attend the Startup Wise Guys online boot-camp to polish their pitches and get feedback on their business models. On the next day, they will pitch to EstBAN’s investors where the jury will choose the top 5 who will go on to win the grand prize.
