KITE Presents Startups Pitch for Brand Partnerships

Monday, March 16
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon F
500 E 4th St

Just how different is a startup pitch for brand partnership than the ones they make to the press or investors? These meetings almost always take place behind closed doors with a company’s most senior executives, so we’re bringing it onto the Startup Village stage. This is your chance to watch startup presentations to a panel of brand decision-makers and corporate innovation experts. The audience will witness the judges’ open deliberation as they share their impressions of the pitches and how they align with strategic marketing brief. One winner will be crowned and will have a shot at a paid pilot with a major marketer.

Presented by KITE.
