Silicon Beach Virtual Pitch Night [Start-up, Founder, Startup, Community]

Register to Pitch here: https://www.siliconbeach.org.au/pitch

No matter where you are, join us on Zoom to empower the future founders of Silicon Beach!

It’s an “elevator pitch”. No pitch decks or slides please - just you talking. After your pitch, we will invite feedback, questions & advice from our panel of expert judges and partners. This is your chance to add anything you couldn’t say in 90 seconds. There will be Zoom Breakout Rooms after the pitches for you to get audience feedback too.

There are some awesome prizes to empower you as you progress on your startup journey. Details on judges and prizes to be announced soon!

You don’t have to have a startup, app, or website to pitch at our pitch night. Pitches for idea validation, looking for co-founders/tech co-founders and pitches by service providers are all welcome (we reserve the right to limit the number of service provider pitches - please get in early).

Not ready to pitch? That’s okay. You can watch and learn. We may have time for some impromptu pitches, just in case you feel inspired!

All attendees are encouraged to network and make new connections via Zoom chat during the pitches. After the pitches, there will be Zoom Breakout Rooms to provide further connections and feedback to the pitchers.
