No, this is not a description of a rap music video, but rather what was up for grabs at Idealog’s first ever Pitch Circus.
Pitch Circus was a part of the recent Idealog Live event, which took place on September 9 at James in Auckland’s Parnell.
Three contestants each prepared a 3 minute and 33 second presentation explaining a little about their business, where they planned to take it in the future, and why they deserved to win.The audience were then able to use a mobile app to vote for who they thought should win. The votes were displayed real time on a screen across three gauges, one for each contestant.
The winner walked away with $1000, business mentoring from patent attorney AJ Park, and business/marketing guru Mike Hutcheson, and a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue.
Many thanks to Johnnie Walker and all our contestants for making the first Pitch Circus a success. Congratulations to Sam and Nicky from Curate.co.nz for taking the win!
