Startup Pitch Night: Focus on Robotics
November 9, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmDonation
Silicon Valley Forum is proud to present a very special edition of Startup Pitch Night! Each session, an elite group of tech startups representing a specific area are selected to pitch their product in front of an audience and panel of judges. For our November edition, we’re excited to see what’s ready to roll out next in robotics. Plus, you’ll hear a special short keynote from Kaname Hayashi, robotics expert and former Head of Development at Pepper Robot. Get tickets now!
How it works:
- Each startup will have the opportunity for a 4 minute pitch to a panel of angels, VCs, corporate investors, and experts.
- Each company will receive 5 minutes of Q&A, then 4 minutes of (nonrebuttal) feedback
- One overall winner selected from the judges’ scores
