Plug In South LA is challenging early-stage founders to share your best brief pitch or demo on Instagram and tag it #UrbanTechConnect. The strongest entries will get a chance to present live onstage at the conference.

Prizes for each winner include three complimentary passes for the team to attend Urban Tech Connect in Los Angeles May 20 – 21, 2020. Winners also receive private one-on-one sessions with venture capitalists, designers, tech resource providers, and fundraising strategists during the conference.

#UrbanTechConnect Pitch Contest Instructions

  1. Record your pitch. It should only be about one to two minutes long. Tell us the problem you’re trying to solve, what you’ve accomplished so far, and what you still need to scale up your business.
  2. Upload the pitch as an Instagram post.
  3. Tag it #UrbanTechConnect and Follow @PlugInSouthLA.

All pitches must be submitted before 5 pm Pacific Time April 30, 2020.

Check out this video example to get started on your own pitch.

Once the pitches are in, our Plug In South LA and Urban Tech Connect Advisory Committee will select the best three — and invite them to present live onstage at the conference in May.

Speakers this year include LeaseQuery CEO George Azih, MISLA founder Cassie Betts, OPV partner Austin Clements, Mahmee CEO Melissa Hanna, Squad CEO Isa Watson, SoLo Funds CEO Travis Holoway, Lisnr CCO Rodney Williams, and other pros.
