i2N Pitchfest is back in 2017
The i2N Hunter Pitchfest is back! On Thursday the 30th of November, the Hunter’s startup community will descend on Hoyts Charlestown and name the best Hunter Startup for 2017!
Almost one year ago to the day, the Newcastle Tech and Startups community came together for the inaugural Hunter Pitchfest.
This year, the stakes are higher. The venue has moved from the 60-seat Dantia Smart Hub to the 110-seat Hoyts Cinema. The bigger venue will bring a higher profile to what was a highly successful first event last year.
If you'd like to pitch at the i2N Pitchfest 2017, please fill in the following application form. Everyone is welcome to apply.
We would like to see a number of unique, interesting pitches, but please be aware of the judging criteria (see below) and the basic elements of a great pitch (also below). You don't need to include a slide telling us how much money you're after - the maximum amount we can give you is $3000!
Prototypes and other visual aids are allowed (even encouraged!). Please note there will be no video or sound allowed, and all slides must be submitted as a .pdf
PITCHES ARE STRICTLY 5 MINUTES EACH.
