Meet growing startups and challenge talented coders!

About the challenge

Learn, code, and have fun!

Pi Day Coding Competition is a challenge organized every year by the growing startups funded by Pi Campus, an Italian VC investing in deep tech companies in EU and US. It’s how we celebrate the beautiful irrationality of π and meet new talent.

The competition usually takes place during a party inside one of our 7 luxury villas converted in offices for startups. That’s because we firmly believe in beauty and networking. Going online is not ideal, but we can’t let the virus slow down our startups’ growth.



Each member of the winning team will be rewarded with a Bose 700 NC headphone, unquestionably the best noise cancelling headphones for the office.
