Brisbane-based accelerator, River City Labs, is a call on investment-ready startups across Australia to apply to pitch at the June investment dinner event, RiverPitch.
RiverPitch will be hosted in 120 year old Cellar of Brisbane’s iconic 1889 Enoteca restaurant on Tuesday June 24th. The event aims to encourage investing in early stage companies and is offering the opportunity for five budding entrepreneurs to present their idea in a ‘pitch’ format to 30 pre-qualified investors.
RiverPitch is an initiative of River City Labs, that aims to cater to the needs of investors who want to see pre-screened pitches and engage with entrepreneurs seeking funding.
The key difference between RiverPitch and Angel group is that the former tries to bring together both sides in a social setting and does not dictate how any investment may get done. All actions after a RiverPitch meeting are bilateral.
Investors who invest in the early stage and startup tech/mobile/internet sector are encouraged to visit www.riverpitch.com/membership. Entrepreneurs operating in this space and looking for funding of between $50,000 and $500,000 can apply to pitch at the events via a 90 second video submission to riverpitch.com/pitch-to-us.
