The PitchFest, Sponsored by AWS, is back for another epic year!

PRESENTED BY


PitchFest presented by AWS and co-sponsored by Simple Story

The SAAS NORTH 2019 PitchFest is back for another epic year! Once again 8-10 companies will take to the Main Stage and present to an audience of nearly 1500 people, making it the largest pitch competition in Canada for SaaS companies scaling up. 

The competition will take place on both Day 1 and Day 2 of SAAS NORTH. Up to five companies each day will be invited to present to the official SAAS NORTH judging panel. An exciting grand-finale will also happen at the end of Day 2, where our finalists will compete one-on-one in a dramatic winner-takes-all pitch-off. The entire SAAS NORTH audience will decide by live people’s choice voting, who will walk away with $10,000 in cash, provided by AWS. The winner will also receive an explainer video production package worth $10,000, provided by Simple Story. 


We are now accepting applications to be one of up to 10 finalists at PitchFest.


Application deadline is extended to Thursday, October 17, 2019

Our esteemed panel of expert judges will review and vet the submissions and will be on stage providing immediate feedback to our pitch companies. They will decide our Day 1 and Day 2 finalists, but the winner will be determined by our audience as they live vote on who should walk away with the prizes!
