In collaboration with Shifter Media, Boitano is hosting a pitching competition at The Shift, 7th of November 2019 in Oslo.

Submit your pitch to us, and we will pick up to ten pitches that will be presented on the Boitano stage during The Shift.  The winner will get help from Boitano to get the idea off the ground.

In this competition everyone is welcome; from the solo entrepreneur to charities, nonprofits and established companies.

The only requirement we have is that you are highly dedicated to the project, and that you can devote your time to work on your idea.

Apply for The Pitch Competition here until the 27th of October!

What’s the prize?

Boitano is putting together a team of expert IT-developers and highly experienced business developers that will take your idea to the next level. We will set aside a total of five weeks* and work together with you on your idea, where the goal is to create your first MVP (minimum viable product). If you already have an MVP, you can still apply, then we will spend the same amount of time to take your idea to the next level (but please specify in your application what you need help with).

How we evaluate your pitch

  • The unique insight you have about the problem you are trying to solve.
  • The potential of your idea. Not only financially, but also in terms of the impact it can have (especially relevant for charities and nonprofits).
  • The team (you and your network if you are alone).

By 1st of November we will pick the finalist that gets to present their pitch on the stage.

Your pitch should be an investor pitch and not a product/sales pitch. This means a focus on the potential of your idea, your team and your unique insight.

The pitch will be 3-4 minutes, depending on the number of pitches we choose. After presenting your pitch, the jury might ask you a question or two.
