In the last month we participated in many pitch night events and by far the Innovation Bay founders dinner was the most valuable. The structure of the night and the feedback together with a list of genuine leads is like no other.Roei Yaakobi, TieUp Farming
Innovation Bay has been a great supporter of Expert360. We've been introduced to a world class network of advisors and investors through their events. They are a great springboard for start-ups in Australia. We raised $100k through the Innovation Bay dinner.Bridget Loudon, Expert360
We closed our Angel round directly from pitching at the Innovation Bay Angel Dinner. with great investors and quality meetings with potential clients through Innovation Bay attendee introductions. It also increased exposure for our next funding round. Great session to learn from successful founders, like the Y Combinator founders also.Vanessa Wilson, StorReduce
Great way to dip the toe into pitching. Very friendly room. Opportunity to meet with the other founders presenting as well as the 'angels' over a drink before hand really framed the evening nicely. As opposed, to entering a cold room which you do in a lot of other pitching environments. We did meet one angel who invested in our pre-seed raise and who has been a great supporter of our business.Heidi Holmes, Mentorloop
Innovation Bay enabled Equitise to refine its pitch with valued mentors and also access some of the best and most active angel investors in Australia in a constructive, fun and laid back pitching environment. The guys at Innovation Bay have provided ongoing introductions to Equitise as a business following the event. What they are doing is fantastic and we certainly recommend the process to anyone considering.Chris Gilbert, Equitise
