The DTU X-Tech finals are a celebration of the achievements of all the 28 teams in the autumn 2020 semester. It is also the last exam of DTU X-Tech, which is a lions’ den where the teams pitch their business and do a tech demo to five angle investors, venture capitalists and corporate vc’s. 


The teams have been working in five different tracks: Water, Food & Agriculture, eHealth, AudioTech and Deep Tech. The teams will have a stand each in DTU Skylab, where they have a chance to meet the other teams, see their tech demos and get feedback from fellow X-Tech’ers.
