Event Details

Pitch for Funds
 
The Pitch for Funds (P4F) Competition
 
 
20 researchers. 90 seconds each. $7,000 in prize money.
 

Come along to UC and watch our researchers 'pitch for funds'.

All 20 of them have amazing ideas and want to make the world a better place. There’s only one thing stopping them … MONEY!

On the night, accompanied by a single PowerPoint slide and/or prop, our researchers will try to convince the judges to invest in their project. Think ‘Shark Tank’ with a twist.

You can show your support too! Each member of the audience will be given a $5 UC note to award to their favourite pitcher (which the recipient can later trade for Australian currency).

Afterwards, mix and mingle with the judges, competitors and other attendees over drinks and canapés.
