It's a thrilla in Manila!

We are giving an amazing opportunity for 10 lucky startups to meet the geeks from GOAP on July 24, 2014 in Makati.

Out of the applications, 10 winners will be selected by GOAP organizing team and given the opportunity to spend 2 hours rubbing shoulders with some of the movers and shakers of the international tech world. This will include geeks like Dave McClure, Andrea Zurek and many more!

The 2-hour session will consist of Fire Pitches and Startup Geek Speed Dating.

What are Fire Pitches?

We will give all 10 startups 1 minute to tell the Geeks about their company, service, product or idea.

What is Startup

Geek Speed dating?

We will be facilitating 10 sets of 8 minute “dates”. Each date will allow a startup and geek to have one-to-one conversation on whatever topic they choose. This can also be an opportunity to exchange business cards or contact details if both want to stay in contact after the event.

We are passionate about providing the chosen startups with the opportunity to get the full attention of a geek. This format also means that the startups will get to talk to ALL the geeks from GOAP despite the limited time!

Don’t worry, startups and geeks will be given 1 minute to say their goodbyes and move on to the next “date” once the 8 minutes is up.

So start practicing your pitches because content is what matters!
