Yes, that’s true – Skinnovation is a startup conference on skis! We will take you to two great ski resorts, namely Axamer Lizum and Schlick2000. Whether you are a beginner or pro, there are plenty of slopes for all levels or you might also go off-slope or try out the funpark.

  • Lift tickets included


Listen to inspiring startup stories, learn from experienced entrepreneurs or join one of the discussion rounds. While gathering many top-notch speakers, yet our talks take place in the cozy atmosphere of a ski hut. This informal setting fosters true exchange and gives you the opportunity to meet the speakers personally and ask questions.

Lift Pitch

Maybe you have already been pitching in a lift, but probably not in a ski lift (except if you attended last year’s Skinnovation). No fancy Powerpoint presentation, just you and the investors riding up the mountain. The ski lift takes exactly seven minutes and there a always two investors together with one startup in the 4-seat chairlift.
The best startups from the lift pitch will get the chance to pitch in front of the crowd on the final evening.

  • Get investors and win valuable prizes

Networking / App

It’s all about making connections. Our event app will help you to get in touch with other Skinnovators and set up meetings. Besides, the app will keep you updated about ongoing talks and activities.

  • New app this time


Network Pitch

On the first evening the stage will be yours. Take the chance and pitch your startup in 60 seconds to the Skinnovation crowd. It’s not a competition but the chance to get your idea out to as many people as possible.

Tyrolean Evening

The first evening of the event is themed as Tyrolean evening. So if you are owning a Dirndl or Lederhosen it’s the right time to wear it. Besides, there will be some delicious Tyrolean food and beer for you to try out. We bet you won’t go home hungry this evening.

  • Lunch and dinner included


Table Captains

During the Friday evening dinner at the Seegrube, each table is going to be hosted by one expert who will guide an exciting dinner discussion. Get the chance to ask and discuss questions and make valuable contact, all while enjoying some great Tyrolean food.

Igloo party

Literally the coolest party ever in a giant igloo on 1905m above sea level. Party together with the other skinnovators and enjoy the panoramic view on Innsbruck. We guarantee that drinks are always cold as ice.

  • Coolest party with best view


Ski Race

This race is not about the toughest skier (or snowboarder) – Network on a faster level, find a partner and beat the mass by having the smallest time difference. Cool rewards are waiting for the best synchronized team.

  • Win cool prizes

After party

Even the best things are coming to an end. After the pitch finals, we invite you to the after party at the Soulkitchen. Hit the dance floor where a live band is playing or enjoy some drinks at the bar.
