Description

Calling all Spectators: Speed-dating for Startups!!!

Selected start-ups will compete in a speed-dating style event where the entrepreneurs ('Pitchers') have 2 minutes to pitch their business idea to specially recruited investors, mentors or service providers (the 'Catchers'). The Catchers will vote on the best Pitcher, who will take home the coveted FastPitch Bat.

Here's how it works: there will be 9 innings (baseball, get it?). Each inning lasts 5 minutes. You'll have 2 minutes (max) to give you elevator pitch to a table of 3-4 Catchers and then 2-3 minutes for discussion. The Catchers will then provide feedback on your pitch, allowing you to fine tune it as you go through the event. They can also ask questions, offer business advice or make a date to learn more. The winners will be announced once all “innings” have been completed. 9 companies will be selected to participate.
