Do you love startups as much as we do?
Join Guidewire Group, Start-up District at the IBM Innovation Center in Austin on November 11th for an exciting afternoon of learning and networking as a group of talented entrepreneurs deliver their best pitch in front of a panel of guest judges in hopes of being named to the Innovate!100 list of 100 most promising startups. The program of pitches will be followed by a networking cocktail.
After a successful series of 17 Innovate!2010 Pitch Slams earlier this year in Europe that began in Zaragoza, Spain and ended in Tallinn, Estonia, as well as events in Mumbai, India and across the US, the Austin Pitch Slam promises to be a terrific event!
Startups interested in applying for a chance to present at the Pitch Slam are encouraged to submit an application online — it’s free to apply, but the deadline is October 22nd.
Admission to the Austin Pitch Slam, which includes the evening cocktail party, is just $49.
Innovate!2010 (http://www.innovate100.com) is a global program to identify 100 of the most promising technology, media and telecommunications startups: the Innovate!100. At each Pitch Slam, a panel of judges trained to conduct Guidewire Group's propietary G/Score Assessments will score companies as they pitch to an audience of local investors, entrepreneurs, technology executives and members of the media.
After all of the Pitch Slams, the top-ranking startups will be named to the Innovate!100 and enjoy global promotion. The Innovate!100 will be offered a chance to participate in the Innovate! Connection Program to profit from pre-qualified introductions to potential partners, investors and customers.
Innovate!2010 is supported by a prestigious group of market-leading companies like Microsoft, Cisco Systems, PayPal, Silicon Valley Bank, Symphony Corporation, Best Buy, HP, Motorola, O2 Litmus, RIM, SAP, Oracle, SWIFT and Verizon, dozens of early-stage investors, and marquee media partners.
