All-Stars Pitch-Off

At this year’s East Meets West 2017 we are inviting startups who have won a pitch competition in their country to compete in Hawaii in front of major investors from around the world including Christine Tsai of 500 Startups, Antonny Liem of GDP Venture, Stefan Jung of Venturra Capital, Tina Cheng of Cherubic Ventures, Henk Rogers of Blue Planet Software and more to be announced.

This includes startups from anywhere in the world,  in any vertical and any round of funding that have won a public startup pitch battle in the past 24 months.

The qualifying startups will be alerted mid-December and will follow a standard pitch format (3-minute pitch/2-minute Q&A) with the winner of the competition taking home a prize package of benefits from our partners equaling US$50,000 and a spot in the next Blue Startups cohort (up to US$100,000 investment) or consultation with the Blue Startups mentor network.

This is a great chance to get your startups in front of international investor panel while networking with them over 2-days at East Meets West in Honolulu.
