About the Start-Up Pitch Dome

The Start-up Pitch Dome @ APPortunity is one of the main sections of the event that aims to give a boost to the Global IT start-up ecosystem. It brings together the investors, VCs, crowd funding groups, incubators and start-ups under one roof to collaborate and grow together. The Pitch dome entails the following two categories:

A dedicated Start-up exhibit arena

The exhibit arena will showcase 40 selected (we are getting an amazing response already and it will not be an easy choice for the chair!) best and the brightest start-ups in the IT domain ranging from innovative ideas from entrepreneurs to  seed funded start-ups, exhibiting their innovations to the global IT ecosystem.

The Spotlight Stage

This will be a dedicated stage within the Pitch dome. Here, the selected 40 startups will get a chance to pitch in front VCs, other start-ups and the global IT community in an allocated slot. The start-ups can give a live demo of their innovation or present the viability of the start-up or launch a dream project…. and gain attention of the overall IT community present at the event. The pitches continue for the whole day on Day 1 of the event. On Day 2 of the event, 1-on-1 mentorship session will be provided to each startup by the VC panel. At 2:00 pm we start with a panel discussion on “Valuation of startups: Tricks of the game”. Post the discussion the VC Chair will announce the start-ups they choose from the overall pitches and will get minimum 1 Cr investment* guaranteed.

Presentation Slot: 10 minutes
Allocation: First come First Serve
*10 pre-screened startups will get a chance to fly down free to Startup Pitch Dome and present at Spotlight stage.
