Showcase Pitch Night 2021
Join us for a night of big ideas and innovative solutions at our 2021 Wade Institute Showcase Pitch Night on Tuesday 9 November from 5.30pm – 7.00pm.
After another crazy year, we’re once again taking Showcase to the virtual world, and we can’t wait to celebrate the amazing achievements of the University of Melbourne’s Master of Entrepreneurship (MoE) graduating cohort.
While they’ve had to navigate a year of uncertainty, disruption and plenty of Zoom rooms, it hasn’t stopped our students from demonstrating their entrepreneurial spirit and coming up with some fantastic solutions to real-world problems. They have been intensively building their business ideas over the last 12 weeks and we can’t wait to see what they have come up with!
Five startups from the cohort will pitch on the night for the chance to win a share of $6,000 in seed funding. On the receiving end will be a panel of high-calibre judges, who will put the teams through their paces in a Q&A:
- Peter Wade – Benefactor, Wade Institute of Entrepreneurship
- Rachel Yang – Partner, Giant Leap
- Kyall Walker – Founder, Ageing Decelerator & VC Catalyst alumnus
Whilst the judges determine the winners, you’ll get to have your say by casting a LIVE vote for your favourite team in the People’s Choice Award!
On the night you’ll also have the chance to hear from our new Director, Nick Kaye, and catch up with MoE alumni who are off doing amazing things all over the world!
Come along and cheer on our emerging talent, support the Australian startup ecosystem and connect with the Wade community.
