ConnectiD is pitching for the win at the Innov8 Award
After three “wolfie” days full of speed meetings, workshops and networking events at Wolves Summit, we’re excited to announce that ConnectiD is pitching to win at the Innov8 Award @BR2016. We’re heading to Manchester this April 21-22 to pitch in the 100 start-up pitch battle competition. There is a chance to win the 50,000k cash prize fund plus other amazing package of start-ups services
Business Rocks is the brand new Tech, Music & Investment summit in the heart of Manchester, UK this April 21-22 2016. The event will see 5000 start-ups, brands, developers, VC’s, mentors, accelerators, universities, associations, government bodies & press (not least the BBC whose home town is Salford) descend on the UK’s growing & vibrant tech hub of Manchester. BR will place Manchester as the international tech start-up destination.
BR2016 confirmed headline speakers include:
Speaking of Steve Wozniak, do you remember our ambition to win #SteveWozHere competition from last week? Well, thanks to your support we received a FREE Pass to the conference which we are using to bring along someone who has got it all wrong with managing their contacts – watch this space!
We want to make Business Rocks an event to remember! We are “cooking” a new stunt for next week, so keep an eye on our page. Your encouragement is our special ingredient to this recipe!
Monte Pittman, Madonna’s guitarist himself will support us after he got ConnectiD to manage his online guitar lesson business
Monte said “The sheer number of people I meet every time I travel makes manually keying their information into my smartphone really tedious…with ConnectiD I have a backed up version of my contacts if I lose my phone that always stay up to date and I can easily add the number/address for my latest hotel to my profile so I can be reached easily”
Curious to find out why he likes ConnectiD so much? Don’t take our word for it, hear directly from him here.
The Innov8 Award will bring together the newest and coolest start-ups in the tech market as we showcase our product innovation to a hand-picked panel of 20 technology gurus, investors and mentors including:
Only the cream of the crop will head through to the semi-finals at the end of Thursday 21st April and the final four start-ups will be back on Friday 22nd April to one last pitch in-front of a new power panel of judges who will decide our fate!
Watch this space we’re gearing up to go into battle and be crowned the “Champions of Innov8 Award 2016”.
We will also be working the floor from Stand 17 opposite the investor stage in a dedicated high-energy start-up zone with pitch-battles, mentor meeting space, investor speed dating, plus cool music parties across the growing tech hub of Manchester allowing the global start-up community to meet the connections they need to grow their business in 2016.
