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


ELEV8 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.


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! As a client of iF, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in programs and events like ELEV8 – who knows, maybe you’ll be pitching at our next one!
