The panel of judges will be comprised of three tech industry experts. Each eligible startup will present a pitch no longer than 3 minutes in length to the judges’ panel. Judges will have 10 minutes of questions after each pitch. Judges will then select the top two startups to go head-to-head during the IDSD closing keynote in front of a live audience. The audience will vote for their favorite startup. The winner will receive $5,000 in prize money.
Along with competing for the title and prize, startups will have an opportunity to grow their business even more! Potential investors at PitchTech will select their top startups for an exclusive 1-on-1 meeting to discuss future partnerships.
Competition Rules and Requirements
At time of application, startups must be in operation for less than two years and Pre-Series A funding. In selecting final contestants, heavy preference will be given to companies that launch for the first time to the public and press at PitchTech.
