In September at the annual HR Tech Conference, event organizers will hold a “Pitchfest” for startups in the HR tech space.
The Pitchfest competition will give up to 30 HR technology startups three minutes to present their solutions to a panel of industry judges, followed by two minutes to answer questions. The preliminary rounds will be held at the HR Tech Conference on September 11 and 12. Then six companies will be selected to advance to the Pitchfest final on September 13.
Each round includes audience voting, which counts for 30 percent of the final score. One winner will be selected to present in the conference’s famous “The Next Great HR Tech Company” session, plus win exhibit space at the 2019 HR Technology Conference.
Designed to recognize startups that are contributing to the future of work, Pitchfest has partnered with Randstad Innovation Fund to offer a single $25,000 prize to the winner of the first annual competition, as well as a $5,000 diversity prize.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to July 13, 2018, and those selected will be notified by July 30, 2018. The online application and additional details can be accessed here. There is no fee to apply.
