THE PITCH PROCESS

Pitches are 5-7min, warning bell at 5min and 'the plug is pulled' at 7min. Then a judge Q&A so pitchers will be given constructive advice on how to better sell their ideas. And spectators will get to see the brave rise or fall... ;-)

Judges will have 5min or so Q&A and so a whole pitch should take 15min including swap over. We will try and get through 8 pitches in the night...

Griffith Hack - awesome IP lawyers!

Let's do SHOTS! Head shots... ;-)
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Still have a grainy head shot from your university days as your LinkedIn profile?

Want to make your Facebook, Twitter (and other social media) stand out and look professional?

It is time to build your brand! It all starts with a quality head shot (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-important-your-linkedin-profile-picture-hannah-beth-cooper)...

Well the NSIN is giving you the opportunity! We will be offering professional, studio-quality head shots for only $100 to our Meetup members!

* Please RSVP (yes) to this event to indicate an interest (no commitment) ... when there is a critical mass, we will coordinate a time & place *

Meet our fantastic photographer:

Eddy Johnstone (https://www.linkedin.com/in/edward-johnstone-27b0143/) of Sharp Eye Photography (http://www.sharpeyesphotography.com/)

Eddy is a Sydney based photographer, passionate about photography. He studied photojournalism at the University of Technology, Sydney and has been a keen photographer for 10 years. Check out his work on:

Again, what is this event about?

The Meetup system can announce events with no time or venue. This is a useful way to have a 'live' event where the RSVP list indicates how many people would be interested in attending that topic or opportunity. It's subtly different to the 'Suggest a Meetup' function.

We want to see if there is a critical mass of North Shore Startup Ecosystem peeps who want to get professional shots done for their social media at $100. No upfront commitment ... just an indication.

So if you're keen, RSVP "YES" and see you soon!

All the best, NSIN Events Team
