Pitching for a Better Baltic Sea aims to strengthen transnational and cross-sectoral collaboration in the Baltic Sea Region within the creative industries. Bringing together start-ups, SMEs, incubators and other CCI organisations and actors from the Baltic Sea Region, the event demonstrates how the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for climate change and sustainability can create value, give direction and lead toward the innovation and investments of the future.
The pitching competition will take place on 28 October with 10 international pitches by Danish, Latvian, Estonian and German entrepreneurs in which they will pitch their creative ideas on how to make the Baltic Sea Region a better place to an international jury of experts.
Following the exciting activities from the day before, the 29 October will offer an internationalisation workshop for the start-ups participating in the event. The workshop will be led by Rasmus Tscherning, CEO and Founder of Creative Business Network.

Pitching for a Better Baltic Sea is developed in connection with the EU Interreg project Creative Ports, funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Program 2014-2020.
The Danish Cultural Institute collaborates with partners in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in creating and producing cultural co-creative projects, organising events and promoting contributions to festivals and exhibitions in the field of music, film, theatre, art, design, architecture and literature.
"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
