Are you an Edupreneur working tirelessly on your EduTech startup? Here's your opportunity to show the world what you have been working on.
OPTUS & SYDEDUTECH PRESENT “Australian EduTech PitchFest 2013” - A national pitching and networking event for Australian EduTech startups.
Come and pitch your EduTech startup with other top EduTech startups from all over Australia.
The winning pitch on the night will receive a Samsung Galaxy S4, courtesy of our sponsors, Optus-Innov8 Seed. On top of that, the best 6 pitches from the night will all get the chance to pitch in the Finals in 2014 to win a trip for 2 to Echelon, Asia’s largest tech conference. Echelon will be held in Singapore in June 2014, and this prize is also courtesy of our sponsors, Optus-Innov8 Seed.
We have assembled a stellar judging panel consisting of Kim Heras (Partner at 25Fifteen, Founder Push Start), Terry Hilsberg (Experienced Education Investor), Matt Easterman (Teacher & Organiser of TeachMeets) and Alfred Lo ( Optus innov8 Seed Fund) to select the winner. Mick Liubinskas (co-founder Pollenizer and more recently Muru-D accelerator) is the MC for the night.
There will be only a limited number of pitches accepted and startups that would like to pitch on the night should register before 6th December. All registered pitches will be reviewed by our expert panel and the best startups will get a chance to pitch on the the PitchFest night. So hurry up and register your pitch.
