Show flow with 1-10 projects

The show takes place every week. As we cannot guarantee how many projects will actually appear for the pitch recording, there is a flow mode according to which the show adapts to the number of participants. This ensures that we can always broadcast and pitchers don't have to wait.

A normal Launch Day Show takes place when 3-10 projects have registered for the Thursday and recorded their pitch. The prize money is based on the number of participants, i.e. between €300 and €1,000. The participants will only find out how much they will receive in the respective show edition during the show.

A Battle Show takes place when 2 projects register and have recorded their pitch. The prize money for the most likes is €200. The project with the most comments will receive an additional €100.

A Boost Show takes place when 1 project registers. The project does not receive prize money but 100€ in adds in the Startnext channels. So we fuel the pitch exclusively. The show will be broadcast with a slightly longer and more in-depth interview.
