We are delighted to announce our new 'Pitch Arena' for 2016. This space has been created, with the kind support of our sponsor, Growing Capital, to help us to further our reach across the global startup community. We are hoping to attract a good mix of new startups in addition to offering the facility for returning startups to keep our community updated on their continued progress.
We hope that our growing community of startups will be able to think of this space as a place where they can attract new users, customers, mentors and other collaborators. Our VC and Angel investor friends have also shared with us that they are typically more interested in seeing traction and progress than they are in seeing new ideas, so this space could also provide an excellent opportunity for startup founders to set out demonstratable milestones that they can be kept accountable to reaching!!
We have developed the following options for you to get involved:
1. Elevator Pitching - Share your startup story in 30 seconds or less.
2. Startup Vlogging - Share regular 2 - 4 minute video (diary) updates about your startup journey with our global community.
Technical requirements for pitches being submitted:
All pitches to be submitted via Dropbox and to have a resolution of 1080p.
See 'IrishStartUp.TV's Top Tips for Perfect Pitching' for advice on pitch preperation and delivery.
See 'How To Pitch 'To Camera' for techniques and technology to use to record your pitches.
All pitches will be assessed by us for content, audio and picture quality to ensure that you do the most justice to your pitch. If you feel that you really need help with the preparation and/or delivery elements of your pitch then please do get in touch so that we can arrange a Skype 'pitch coaching' session to help you out. Please note that a small fee will apply for that service.
We can’t wait to share your story with our community so do get involved today - what are you you waiting for?!
