Actions and Detail Panel
"Welcome to the Crocodile Pit"
Tue. 30 May 2017, 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm AEST
Picture this: you arrive at Asia's largest fintech hub to a lineup of six hand-selected, high-growth startups that are changing how the world does their banking. They've spent long nights designing, refining and practicing their pitch, and there are five experienced investors in the room to help you make your decision.
Now it's your turn: you'll receive $500,000 investor dollars at the door to build your portfolio. How do you want to do your banking in the future? What ideas will you support? Which startups make you most excited about the future of financial services? You have to put your $500K behind the best idea of the day; which startup will you choose?
Don't forget to pay attention to the panel's advice, the valuation, the founding team, the potential market size, and the product itself. Think you can do it? See you in the Crocodile Pit.
Proudly sponsored by Stone & Chalk and AWS, Crocodile Pit is brought to you as part of Vivid Sydney.
