Each Pitch Contest is hosted by a partner and organized into 1.5 hour sessions on stage during the conference. Only 5 to 10 startups will be selected to pitch in each contest. The format of the pitch will vary for each contest, however it will typically be a 5-to-10-minute pitch and Q&A. There will be only one round of pitching in front of a jury for all Contests. The jury will consist of investors, corporate executives and industry experts.
