Calgary area startups are invited to submit their 80 second pitch videos to Podium Ventures by June 18th. Startups submitting videos for this contest will be judged on ideas, execution and entertainment value.
The event is part of Calgary Stampede. Startups will have 80 seconds to “rope their way to the top” in hopes of winning the Pitch Rodeo trophy. There are three great prizes available to pick from for the top three pitches:
- Two tickets to Canada House at SXSW 2013 to pitch internationally
- Opportunity to pitch your startup in front of Venture Alberta to get funding
- Visual business model session with Business Instincts Group to hone your business plan
“We are very excited to sponsor an event in which the Calgary startup community has the opportunity to pitch their ideas” says Adam Joyce, Executive Vice President of PODIUM Ventures.
If you think you’ve got what it takes you can submit a summary outlining the idea and a YouTube link to your 80 second practice pitch. Submissions are due by June 18th and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
