Event description
Join Startup Calgary, Platform Calgary and Rainforest Alberta for Startup Drinks & Pitches on Tuesday, August 3 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM MDT.

About this event

Startup Drinks & Pitches is a collaboration between Startup Calgary and Rainforest Alberta, providing entrepreneurs with pitching opportunities for their scalable and tech-enabled ideas. Pitches are done to a group of fellow entrepreneurs, innovators and community members in a casual, no-pressure setting. This allows you to practice talking about your ideas, seek support from the community and network with like-minded individuals.

Registration includes optional drinks from the Dandy Brewing Company and there will be a virtual beer tasting session during the event. If you missed the drink tickets, please feel free to bring your own drinks to join us in this virtual event!

*Pitching opportunities are for entrepreneurs with ideas that are highly scalable & tech-enabled. Please do not enter to pitch if you are a consultant or service provider.*

Agenda:

  • 5:35 PM - 5:45 PM: Introduction
  • 5:45 PM - 6:30 PM: Networking, Games and Virtual Beer Tasting
  • 6:30 PM - 6:40 PM: Networking Recap
  • 6:40 PM - 7:25 PM: Pitches
  • 7:25 PM - 7:35 PM: Conclusion and Prize Announcement!

Apply to pitch:

Your 1-minute verbal pitch (no slides allowed!) should focus on:

  • What problem you're solving
  • How you are going to solve that problem
  • What help do you need to make it happen (ie: looking for a technical co-founder, looking for beta users, interested in connecting with a supplier, etc.)

*Pitching opportunities are for entrepreneurs with ideas that are highly scalable & tech-enabled. Please do not enter to pitch if you are a consultant or service provider.*
