Pre- Summit Selection Process

Initial shortlisting will take place one week after applications close, and you will be notified if you make the cut.

The committee will then select a number of companies to present their 5 minute pitch at the 2013 Pitching Events in Brisbane (February 12th), Sydney (February 13th) and Melbourne (February 15th).

Twenty-five companies will be selected to participate in the Program. These companies will be announced on February 18th 2013.

Summit Selection Process

On Day 3 of the Summit, companies will have the opportunity to present their pitch to the US selection panel, and 10 companies will be selected to participate in the Investor Forum on Day 3.

Although only 10 companies will pitch during the Investor Forum on Day 3, all companies are invited to participate in the Demo Session, which will take place immediately following the Investor Forum.
