ELEV8 GIVES promising STARTUPS THE opportunity TO PITCH THEIR BUSINESS AND win cash prizing


ELEV8 is a new program by Innovation Factory that showcases companies who have a product in-market (or close to launch) in an investment-style pitch presentation. It’s designed to help connect our partners, volunteer mentors and the broader Hamilton community with up-and-coming startups.

ELEV8 Pitch Night occurs three times per year (March, June, November) and is open to the public. Guests have the opportunity to observe a number of five-minute presentations from local innovators, and network while refreshments and appetizers.

pitch-competition-ifYou may remember our Innovation Nights – well, we’re taking that concept and elevating it by having thriving startup clients pitch investment-style in front of our panel of expert judges, for the chance to take home a cash prize!

Interested in pitching at ELEV8 Pitch Night?

All startups that pitch are clients who are working with Innovation Factory and being coached by our mentors. To become a client, you can fill out an intake form, come in for an intake meeting and get the ball rolling!
