Join Innovation Factory on June 21, 2017 for their ELEV8 Pitch Night!

ELEV8 has companies who have a product in-market (or close to launch) present themselves in an investment-style pitch presentation. It’s designed to help connect our partners, volunteer mentors and the broader Hamilton community with some of our up-and-coming startups.

ELEV8 Pitch Night is open to the public and attendees will have the opportunity to observe 8 five-minute presentations from local innovators, and network while enjoying delicious appetizers! This month’s presenters include: Chez Dine, Era Diabetes, Healthy Pets, HomeShare Alliance, Kinly, Log Cabin, Square Select, and Wolf Soccer Tech.

Presenters will be pitching investment-style for the chance to take home a $250 or $750 prize!

The ELEV8 Pitch Night will be held at McMaster Innovation Park from 6 – 9 p.m.


6 p.m. – Networking, Registration

6:45 p.m. – Pitches begin

8:15 p.m. – Deliberation & Winners Announced
