Event Details

Apply to be named to the Innovate!100 for a share of over $1 million in cash and prizes.

Here's how it works.


Step 1: Startups apply online to receive:

  • 2 tickets to attend one of the Innovate!2010 Pitch Slams (worth over $100 USD)
  • The chance to be chosen to pitch at a local Pitch Slam to win a place on the Innovate!100 list
  • Eligibility to win a share of sponsored prizes valued at over $1 million USD

The $75 application fee - approximately €54 - will not be charged until you complete the form. 

Guidewire Group's analysts will evaluate all applications and invite several semi-finalists to pitch at a local Pitch Slam. Please provide clear, concise answers and clearly communicate the milestones you have achieved in the last year.


Step 2: Local Pitch Slams take place

Startups invited to pitch at the Innovate! Pitch Slams will each deliver a five-minute pitch to an audience and panel of judges. Each company will be evaluated by our team of expert judges and provided with a G/Score. 

Semi-finalists who are not able to attend their Pitch Slam will be invited to participate in a Web-based pitch session.


Step 3: Promotion of the Innovate!100

Pitch videos for all of the Innovate!100 semi-finalists will be used to promote pitching companies to local journalists and a network of over 5,000 news sites and via the Innovate! Connections Program.  Startups with the top G/Scores will be named to the Innovate!100 list for 2010 and the Innovate! Challenges prizes will be awarded.
