Pitchfest is an opportunity for technology startup founders to pitch their businesses and needs to a select audience of entrepreneurs, private investors, public funders, service providers, business leaders, and community members.
Check in downstairs at Salon 8 in the Shaw Conference Centre, show your ticket, and get registered for Pitchfest Edmonton. Also meet some of the exciting startups that will be pitching. Enjoy food and refreshments while you network.
Sprout Fund managing partner, Lindsay Dodd, will introduce the event and thank the various sponsors and partners, the startup founders pitching, and the audience for attending Pitchfest Edmonton. He will also introduce the keynote speaker.
The keynote speech will feature a successful local entrepreneur who will talk about the path of the startup journey.
Local venture capital investors will talk about what they look for in funding startup companies.
Eight startup founders pitch their businesses and describe their needs to the audience. Each founder has 20 minutes total for their pitch and the Q&A.
A startup advisor asks questions of the founder about the company's business and its needs, and will also take questions from the audience. The audience will then rate the startup company using Slido.com on their smartphones.
The Sprout Fund investor judges will announce the best judged pitch, the audience favorite, and the next two best judged pitches.
Food and drinks will be served while the audience members network among themselves, with the investors, and with the startup company founders that pitched.
