Nail The App Pitch and Get a Ticket up the CN Tower

by Rob Lewis | Technology

Calling all startups, students, developers, and designers.

The App Pitch is an opportunity to show the Toronto startup, student, and developer community your app ideas for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

More important, it’s a chance to win $500 and to pitch your startup to investors during the International Startup Festival Elevator World Tour in Toronto on January 31.

You can register to pitch your app as an individual or as a team of two. You'll have three minutes to pitch your app idea to a team of judges. The judges will then select six finalists, based on the judging criteria. Those teams will then pitch to the audience, who will decide the top three apps, who will in turn receive a spot in the elevator to pitch their startup to investors during the elevator tour.

The App Pitch competition takes place on January 29 at MaRS Discovery District. Register online to participate.
