If you are planning on pitching an idea at our event, it is important to be prepared!

Do some research into startup tools and best practices to get ready to rock the weekend – start with our database of resources at Make sure you get lots of rest prior to the event, and finally – tell your friends! If you plan on pitching an idea:

  • Do as much research/preparation around your idea as you feel is necessary to give a persuasive pitch and attract a team.

  • Boil the idea down to the basics: with 60 seconds, you only really have time for a hook, so pull out the most attractive key points of the idea and forget the rest.

  • Practice your pitch using a timer!

We look forward to seeing you there! RSVP
