ELEV8 Pitch Competition: April 2018

April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Save the date for ELEV8 Pitch Night!

ELEV8 has companies who have a product in-market (or close to launch) present themselves in an investment-style pitch presentation. It’s designed to help connect our partners, volunteer mentors and the broader Hamilton community with some of our up-and-coming startups.

ELEV8 Pitch Night is open to the public and attendees will have the opportunity to observe five-minute presentations from local innovators, and network while enjoying delicious appetizers!
