Life’s a Pitch – pitching practice for all you startups…

March 19 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm

**Coach TBA** will lead the session (limited spots). YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A PITCHER ON THE NIGHT!

**Coach Bio**


Pitches are 5-7min, warning bell at 5min and ‘the plug is pulled’ at 7min. Then a judge Q&A so pitchers will be given constructive advice on how to better sell their ideas. And spectators will get to see the brave rise or fall… 😉

Judges will have 5min or so Q&A and so a whole pitch should take 15min including swap over. We will try and get 8 pitches in the night…
