Have you got a solution that will revolutionize the postal and logistics markets? The deadline for startups to apply for the pitch competition at PostalVision 2020 has just been extended to February 18. The competition is a first at the annual event, which will be held from April 3-8 at the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City.

The startup competition is a first for the mail-focused event. We’ve been taking note lately of more tech at mail-focused conferences.

“Startups can present their idea, product or solution to a wide audience, and a jury of postal and logistics experts will select the Startup that ranks best according to the award criteria,” according to Postal Pitch.

That criteria is:

  • Innovation: The product or solution has identified new, so far unmet, customer needs and is able to address those needs.
  • Value: It has a unique value proposition and differentiates itself from other products or solutions.
  • Impact: It can change the market or create a new market.

The jury, which will present the winner with the Startup Innovation Award, is as follows:

  • Thierry Golliard, Director Open Innovation & Venturing, Swiss Post
  • Olaf Klargaard, Director, Innovation, Geopost
  • Karlijn Krol, StartUp Scout, PostNL Innovation Studio
  • Gary Reblin, Vice President, Product Innovation, USPS
  • Farzin Shadpour, Vice President and Managing Director, Supply Chain, PlugandPlay
  • Elmar Toime, Chairman, Postea Group
