Description

Pitch X is back, and we are thrilled to be teaming up with the famous Melbourne Silicon Beach to kick off our first ever pitch night in Melbourne! Together, we’re on a mission to help connect, motivate, and grow startups!

We will bring a room full of experts from across the startup landscape and some amazing judges to provide entrepreneurs and the startup community with the perfect pitching platform.

It’s been a while since we ran our last Pitch X event, so in 2018, we’re bringing it back with a twist!

Introducing Pitch X vs. Silicon Beach: a pitching competition open to anyone who wants to pitch for a co-founder, investor, mentor, support, or just practice.

This is a friendly, fun, pitching competition, providing attendees with an opportunity to practice and refine their pitch and progress their startups’ message. We encourage everyone to do a one-minute pitch where you’ll need to answer key questions:

What problem are you tackling? What solution are you creating?

The pitch

Pitch how you want, however, you may want 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 and what traction you’ve received
  • What you’re pitching for? Support, funding, resources etc

The night

Round one:

Anyone can put their hand up to pitch on the night. The first round will consist of 90 second pitches. Our Judges will choose the top three pitches to progress to the 2nd round.

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! We’re lining up some awesome prizes, so stay tuned!

The judges

This year our judges include:

Charbel Zeaiter: CXO and Co-founder of Academy Xi
