Pitch X is back, and we are thrilled to be teaming up with startup ecosystem leaders to bring you a Winter pitch special. We are inviting early-stage teams or individuals to present their idea for feedback, praise, prizes and potentially more.
Whether you are in ideation, validation, prototype or even beta, if your idea is digital we want to hear about it. Present your idea and tell us who or what you are pitching for — it could be for support, testers, mentors, co-founders, devs, investors, or just to get some pitching practice.
We will bring a room full of experts from across the startup landscape and some amazing judges to provide entrepreneurs and the startup community with the perfect pitching platform.
This is a friendly, fun, pitching competition, providing attendees with an opportunity to practice and refine your pitch and progress your startups’ message.
How the Night will Run
Anyone can put their hand up to pitch on the night, but spots are likely to fill up in advance. To ensure your spot, register to pitch here https://academyxi.typeform.com/to/ebx6tU . You will get 90 seconds to pitch and you might want to include the following:
Intro yourself and/or your team
Talk about the problem you’re solving
Reveal your solution
Tell the judges what stage your startup is at and what traction you’ve received
What you’re pitching for? Support, funding, resources etc
Judges will ask you up to three questions after your 90-second pitch. They will also take a question from the audience, which will help to form an opinion of your pitch and product.
