The Elevator World Tour was recently brought to my attention and looks like a great opportunity at $100,000 in startup funding. I apologize for not posting sooner but the deadline to pitch your startup is May 7, 2014. Hurry up and apply to pitch here!
Even if you don’t make the deadline you can still attend the event and make some great connections. The event takes place from 4:30 PM to midnight on May 22nd at One World Trade Center. Click here to sign up to attend.
What’s really unique about this event is each startup that pitches will only have as much time as it takes to ride an elevator to the top of One World Trade Center! A fun twist on the “traditional” elevator pitch.
Read on for more details about the World Tour.
“The contest is part of a worldwide startup contest known as the Elevator World Tour that runs literal elevator pitches in some of the world’s most iconic buildings. Other stops on the tour have included Toronto’s CN tower and the Azrieli Tower in Tel Aviv, with upcoming events in Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Dubai and Santiago.
Up to 100 aspiring startups will compete for an investment of $100,000 from a team of angel investors. Judges so far include Jamie O’Hara of Grise Global Groupe, Jesse Kaplan of Plazacorp, Danny Knafo, Michael Hollinger, Randy Smerik of OsunaTech and Geoff Judge of iNovia Capital.”
