Event Details

To kickstart 2019 off with a bang, we’re excited to launch our first pitch night in collaboration with YBF Ventures and Melbourne Silicon Beach — Pitch X: A Pitch to Remember.

We’re on a mission to help connect, motivate, and grow startups.

Bringing together experts from across the startup landscape, our amazing judges will provide entrepreneurs and the startup community with the perfect pitching platform.

Pitch X is a friendly pitching competition open to anyone who wants to pitch for a co-founder, investor, mentor, support, or just practice.

We encourage everyone to enter for a chance to pitch where you’ll need to answer key questions:

  • What problem are you tackling?
  • What solution are you creating to address this problem?

The pitch

Pitch how you want, however, we encourage you 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

The night

Round one:

A number of selected pitches will be asked to prepare a 90-second pitch. Our judges will choose the top three pitches to progress to the 2nd round.

If you’ve been selected to pitch on the night, you’ll receive notification from our team before-hand, so look out for us in your emails!

Round two:

For the second round, finalists will have five minutes to pitch. The judges will then pick the best in this round to win! We’re lining up some awesome prizes, so stay tuned!
