HELSINKI, Finland, November 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Lifeline Ventures, an early stage investor in strong founders and disruptive technologies, organizes the 2nd World's Strongest Founder/Investor Competition at Slush 2013, the leading startup conference in Europe and the Nordic countries.

"Strong founding teams and investors are essential for any startup company's success, but we have been lacking objective metrics. This competition is fulfilling this obvious need of startup ecosystems worldwide", comments Timo Ahopelto, Founding Partner at Lifeline Ventures. 

The World's Strongest Founder/Investor Competition is open for founders and investors at the Lifeline Ventures Weight Lifting Pavillion at Slush 2013. The strength is measured with the combined maximum bench press and dead lift performance.

"This is the only truly objective metric of any startup founder's or investor's strength in our industry", adds Petteri Koponen, Founding Partner at Lifeline Ventures.

Last year's competition was attended by several founders and investors around the world, including Aydin Senkut of Felicis Ventures and Sean Seton-Rogers of PROfounders Capital. This year, the competition also pilots The World's Strongest Politician series, where Ambassador Bruce J. Oreck fascinated the audience with 130kg bench presses last year.
