CommBank presents Female Pitching Comp!

In conjunction with The Indus Entrepreneurs, Commonwealth Bank, under their Women in Focus arm will be holding an exclusive female only pitching competition in May celebrating women as entrepreneurs.

The objective of TiE Sydney’s Pitching Competition is to give aspiring women entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn to pitch to angel investors, build their confidence in their ideas and themselves and connect to TiE’s global network of supportive members.

All entrants have an opportunity to refine their pitching skills before the competition at an optional pitching workshop and receive valuable feedback from experienced TiE Charter Members. At the event participants pitch their entrepreneurial idea in a short three-minute presentation and a two-minute Q&A to convince a panel of judges to back their idea.

The judging panel will be made up of experienced TiE Charter Members, angel investors and VCs. To top it all off the first prize is a ticket to fly to Silicon Valley and admission to TiE’s flagshipTiECON Silicon Valley Conference 18 & 19 May 2012, providing a unique opportunity to meet with angels, venture capitalists and strategic investors – and pitch to them!  TiECON SV is attended by the who’s who of the Valley with several thousand delegates from aroudn the world.
