On May 24-25, 2021, the Skolkovo AdVentureLand startup competition was held, the format of which for the first time provided for three stages of competition rather than standard pitches. 
During the year, since the last Startup Village, those who want to take part applied, and out of more than two thousand, the organizers chose only 80. The jury, business angels Kirill Parinov, Bogdan Yarovoy, Vitaly Polekhin and Denis Efremov selected only 32 of the most convincing and promising projects from them, which clashed in the final battle. 
The first stage was as concentrated as possible: in just a minute, the speaker, armed with a presentation with a single slide, had to present his project to a jury of professional investors in such a way as to get at least one "like". 
The second stage is the battle of metrics. The battle took place within the teams, the captain assigned which of his projects were measured by metrics among themselves. Based on the results of this stage, a decision was made on which of the projects selected by him will go to the final. 
The final is a five-minute pitch with a presentation. The winner was awarded to the project for which more votes were given in social networks: Facebook and VK. 
Participation in the pitch to investors gave us the opportunity to attract funding for the seed project round in order to enter the markets of Europe and Asia, develop project tools such as Big Data, streaming analytics, Data Discovery, as well as receive support in the innovation and scientific community.
