StartupSmart’s first ever pitching competition, So You Think You Can Start-up, is on tomorrow night. The 10 finalists are competing for a raft of great prizes, including a year’s office space anywhere in the world with sponsor Servcorp valued at $250,000.
The business-to-business start-ups will be pitching in front of a distinguished panel of judges including entrepreneur and founder of Kogan Technologies, Ruslan Kogan, Sydney Seed Fund partner Garry Visontay and start-up expert Dr Jana Matthews.
StartupSmart received over 100 entries to the competition from a range of industries including enterprise software, consulting, agriculture and outsourcing.
The majority of start-ups were one or two years old, with 40% launching in 2013 and 36% in 2012.
