In partnership with GEM Advertising and The Profile Lower Lonsdale as part of the Accelerate North Shore Series we’re bringing Vancouver Startup Week to North Vancouver with Pitch the North Shore!
Pitch the North Shore is a pitch contest for early stage companies who want to present their businesses to expert investors and the wider business community. This is an opportunity to gain critical feedback on business models and pitch strength, as well as gain exposure and recognition. Guests will be treated to pitches from innovative companies, expert insights from the judges panel and the opportunity to network with pitch finalists and judges. This half-day event will include a short keynote address, introduction to the judges followed by the pitch competition. The event will wrap up with networking and light refreshments.
Each company selected to pitch will have 5 minutes to introduce their business and concept. Judges will then be encouraged to ask questions about the business model and growth potential. A maximum of 15 minutes will be allotted for each pitch including Q & A. The Pitch Winner will receive a Growth Positioning Session from GEM Advertising at a value of $4000.
