Pitch X is back! WE ARE FULL. Sorry if you missed out. See you in June

Pitch X is a friendly pitching COMPETITION. A real competition with awesome judges and mouthwatering prizes!

Presented in partnership with our Education Sponsor, AcademyXi and Coworking Partner, YBF Ventures. Together, we are on a mission to empower, educate, connect, motivate and inspire our founders and grow the startup eco-system in Melbourne and in Australia. Come, learn, watch as history unfolds. When some of these startups go on to become household names, you could say you were there when they pitched at Pitch X. Yes!

This is a FREE event, thanks to our Sponsors -

Oh, there will be food & drink too!
The beer 🍻 🍺 is kindly sponsored by EverestEnginering

This event is promoted to AcademyXi and YBF communities too. It will go to waitlist. YOU don’t want to miss this one!

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
• Say what traction you’ve received
• What you’re pitching for? Support, funding, resources etc

Want to practice before Pitch X?
Come and pitch in front of a supportive crowd at our March Silicon Beach Pitch Night on 7th March. No judges. You might even get a wildcard into Pitch X. There are only a few pitch spots available. RSVP on the below link and fill the pitch form in the description of that page -

—— >> 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 some awesome prizes.

If you’d simply like to attend, just RSVP on this page, BEFORE it goes to the waitlist!

—- >> Prizes & Judges
You know what?!
There is no room on Meetup to list all the fabulous prizes and the amazing talent, skill and the sheer expertise of the judges. We have exceeded the word limit!

Have a look at them on the AcademyXi page (link below), and come back here to RSVP on this page - please don’t RSVP on both pages! You will be preventing many others from attending. That’s not cool.
