Extreme Pitch – August 30th

On Tuesday, August 30th at 6:30pm, Gangplank will host a fast-paced, interactive pitch event. Extreme Pitch invites innovative local products and companies to share their vision with investors, media and experienced entrepreneurs. The event takes traditional pitches and adds a little flair to keep presenters on their toes, including a real-time rating board with audience input and an elimination round.

The initial round will include 10 pitches, with four-minutes allotted per pitch. During the dinner break, panelists will chose the top three pitches to move onto the next round, which will include audience questions and panelist feedback. A final winner will be declared based on highest number of votes. Food and drinks will be provided.

Several of the teams pitching come directly out of Startup Weekend Chandler and the Roadmap to Launch program.

The event is free, but you must be registered to attend.
