The creativity in pitch events gets better and better. We’ve all heard of the Startup Bus to Austin’s South by Southwest Festival. Several cities have had Startup Trains, where people work on startups on a day long train ride, we’ve even heard of a Startup Beach House (that was unfortunately cancelled).
Now, Wayne University’s TechTown Accelerator is hosting Startup Soup.
The event is open to the public and will be held on August 3rd. Startups that want to pitch must register at the link below before July 31, 2012.
The pitches will be five minutes and there doesn’t seem to be a theme for the pitch contest. There is a nice $1500 cash prize along with 5 free TechTown seminar passes for the winner. The winner will be chosen by a panel of local tech community judges.
The finalists will all receive complimentary tickets to 2 future TechTown events. The events at TechTown are all meant for startup enrichment and offer valuable business resources and continuing education.
After the pitches and the winners are selected there will be an evening of networking, and you guessed it… soup.
The event starts at 5:30pm August 3rd at TechTown 2051 Rosa Parks Boulevard in Detroit.
