SomePitching returns for a fifth time. The crowd sourced online business idea competition that mixes feedback on pitches from the public and a professional jury is all set and ready to go. Registration begins on November 1st and video submissions need to be in by November 22nd.
The competition is open to both early-stage startups and individuals who have a great idea but need the feedback of a group of experienced professionals to begin to turn that idea into a viable business. For those not interested in applying to the competition they can still take part in the public voting by checking out the video submissions from November 25th and giving opinions on them. To entice people to take part there’s a raffle of product prizes as well, which helps move me at least from curious to willing participant.
Of course the best prizes in the competition are saved for successful entrants. While this year’s prizes have only just begun to be announced we can see that prizes such as legal services from KPMG, office space at Technopolis for six months or a lunch meeting with selected FiBAN investors from the previous competitions run do show the value of entering. All contestants are promised feedback on their ideas and investors may get priority access to see the market analysis generated from the ideas; it seems there’s something for everyone getting involved.
So if you’re interested in the competition get working on your video entry and if you just want to win some Amazon vouchers stick Nov 25th in your diary and come back to start evaluating videos.
