iF Pitch & Networking Night – October 2019

October 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Don’t miss Innovation Factory’s Pitch & Networking Night!

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.

iF’s 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!

Our presenters will be pitching investment-style for the chance to take home a $250 or $750 prize!

More money up for grabs! Cast your vote!

We are giving away an extra $150 cash prize to the presenting company that wins the most audience votes. Help an early-stage local company get an extra boost by choosing your favourite!

The iF’s Pitch Night will be held in Conference BCD in McMaster Innovation Park from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
