In which stage of the competition are we?

Multiple tens of ventures are competing for the grand prize of the Battle of Green Talent! They iteratively improve their pitch and business plan through several rounds, with the goal to attract virtual financing from the investors in the game.
Currently, we are in the third round of the game, in which the venture teams are fine-tuning their business plans. They have time until 15 March, 17:00 CET to finalise their one-pagers and attract (for the last time) as many investments as possible to obtain that coveted place in the final.  
Only the top 5 ventures will proceed to the final round, so the competition is getting heated! And only the top 3 investors will compete for the grand prize, so stay tuned!
Countdown till last investment round!
