Event Details

Thank you for your interest in the Innovate!2010 program.

After a successful series of 14 Innovate!2010 Pitch Slams in Europe that began in Zaragoza, Spain and ended in Tallinn, Estonia, we're excited to be embarking on a North American Pitch Slam tour that will take the Innovate!2010 program to cities across the U.S. this summer and fall.

As part of our partnership with the University of Missouri at Columbia's Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute, a select number of student teams will be invited to participate in an invite-only Pitch Training workshop on the morning of August 16th. The hands-on workshop will give you practical experience preparing and delivering a startup pitch in front of an audience.

In addition, the most promising student teams will receive a chance to compete alongside startup entrepreneurs from the business community during the Innovate!2010 Pitch Slam later that afternoon.

To be considered, please complete this application form to provide Guidewire Group's analyst team with pertinent details about your student team. On the form, you will see a notation next to the information that will be considered public and may be used to promote your participation in the program. The other information will be kept private and will be used soley for the purpose of evaluating your team. 

 If you have any questions before you apply, please email
