It's just under 2 weeks until Innovation Night SHOWDOWN! Now this is one iF event that I'm totally jazzed about!
We're running a round-robin pitch tournament on a bracket similar to what you'd see in NCAA basketball, featuring 8 of our past Innovation Night Winners who will compete for the title of Ultimate Innovation Night Champion! The winner will recieve an ipad 3 and a meeting with Mark Chamberlain!
You're sure to remember our finalists from past Innovation Night events! At Innovation Night SHOWDOWN we'll see who reigns supreme! Will the winner be Topic Simple, Air Conveyance, Cool Canuck, sPECTERGY, nERVU, O2 Oxygen Bar, Mocial.Me or Hamilton Roller Girls?
Here's the twist - YOU GET TO DECIDE!
Each of our finalists will be paired up to face off (one will be on the "blue" side of the stage and the other will be on the "orange" side). They'll each have 2 minutes to pitch their market pain and solution. Then, the AUDIENCE will vote on blue vs. orange! The winner will advance to round 2 and face off with a new partner with a 2 minute pitch on their market opportunity, then the audience will vote again. The two finalists who make it to the final round will compete against one final partner with a 2 minute executive summary, and the winner (as voted on by the audience) will be the ultimate innovation night champion!
If that wasn't enough, we're inviting everyone attending to join us for dinner before the Showdown! Rolly Rockets BBQ will be catering a souther BBQ buffet, complete with their famous smoked chicken, pulled pork, and beef brisket rockets, tangy sauces, slaw, beans, and cornbread! There will be a cash bar serving up ice cold beer and summery sangria. And to top it all off, Sweet Ice Snow Cones will be providing all-you-can-eat all natural snowcones for dessert so you can beat the heat and try as many of their mouthwatering flavours as you like!
Tickets to this can't-miss summer event are FREE, but you need to sign up by July 20 if you'd like to join us, so get yours today!
