PitchFest Edmonton

December 7, 2018

Pitchfest Edmonton is an event where startup company founders pitch their businesses and specific needs to an audience of public and private investors, service providers, business leaders, and community members. An expert panel will ask questions of the startup founders and then the audience will offer ideas and proposals to the startup founders. In addition, the $1 million Sprout Fund will invest in selected companies that pitch at Pitchfest.

The goal of this event is to enhance the Edmonton entrepreneurial community by helping startup founders find the key resources that meet their specific startup business needs.

Each startup founder will have 7 minutes to pitch their business and specific resource needs, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from an audience panel. Then the audience members will have 5 minutes to fill out a form to email the startup founder with ideas and offers for various ways they might be able to fulfill those specific needs, whether they be financing, marketing, legal, strategy, business development, personnel, product development, or sales. After all of the pitches are finished, the audience will be able to vote online to choose their favorite pitch.
