In case you haven’t heard, the International Startup Festival will be held July 11th through July 13th in Montreal. We’re beyond excited to be attending and rubbing elbows with some of the best and brightest. With speakers like Dave McClure, Tara Hunt, April Dunford and Dan Martell, it’s shaping up to be an amazing few days. Well, especially for the startup that wins the $50,000 investment prize!
StartupFest announced earlier this year that one totally-mind-blowingly-amazing startup will leave with a $50,000 investment in their back pocket. The best part is that any startup in attendance with a badge has the opportunity to win the prize. All it takes is some time spent schmoozing with the ten designated judges.
When we heard about this investment prize, we knew we had to get involved. That’s why we’re happy to announce that we’ve added a free video to the prize pack. We’ll create a 60-second custom animation video for the winning startup. Knowing video’s conversion multiplying power, we’re sure our addition will fit nicely with the other entrepreneur-friendly prizes. How could it not? That adds an additional $25k of value to the prize.
We’re more excited than ever to be heading to Montreal for StartupFest this week. If you’re going to be there, we’d love to meet up with you and talk all things startups and entrepreneurship. Or maybe just about that great prize.
Who knows? By Friday afternoon your startup could be backed by VC investors Phil Telio, Alistair Croll, Anna Goodson, Rory Olson, Mohan Plakkot and Danny Knafo. And hey, the extra prizes (including a 60-second video from yours truly) are just icing on the cake.
So, dust off that elevator pitch and grab your lucky socks. We’ll see you in Montreal!
