Launch Academy Pitch Day August 2013

***Please register on EVENTBRITE- an RSVP on Meetup is NOT an RSVP to the event


Launch Academy's fourth Pitch Day is back again on August 28th! Come check out some of our hottest startups and watch them pitch their companies to a panel of Vancouver's finest tech professionals!

Whether you're looking to invest, looking to join a startup, or just want to check out the tech scene here in Vancouver, this is an awesome opportunity to meet some cool people and see how great ideas (and great companies) are born!

...oh, and there MIGHT also be some grownup drinks and grub. Just to sweeten the deal.

Since we're big proponents for change, we decided to switch up the format this year:

- 6-6:30: registration opens
- 6:30-7:15: 20+ of our companies will showcase science-fair style around the venue and YOU get to vote on your faves (we'll give you ballots to allocate as you see fit to each company)
- 7:15-8: The finalists of our Student Startup Challenge get 3 mins to pitch to our panel of judges
- 8-9: The top 5 Launch Academy companies that you <3'd the most get 5 mins to pitch to our panel of judges and engage in judge Q&A

...we're also so stoked to have such a beautiful office, we thought we'd do a #humblebrag and invite y'all to see the cool workplace that we get to hang out in every single day ;)

Who's Gonna Be There?
This year we're lucky to have the gorgeous and talented Mr Greg Smith from Thinkific as our moderator. And, to top it off, judges will include:

Raseel Sehmi, Solution Partner Manager at Hootsuite
Rob Lewis, President and Editor-In-Chief of TechVibes
Kim Kaplan, VP Product, Business Development, Marketing, and Advertising at Plenty Of Fish
Amy Rae, Principal at VanEdge Capital
Andrew Jones, Principal and Co-Founder at Garibaldi Capital Advisors

Tickets wont last long, so be sure to get yours ASAP!

    Pretty heavy work load which is taking longer than anticipated. I will have to miss this. Sounds like it's shaping up to be a great event!
