Sorry, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2016 Pitch Event.
There is no fee to apply.
A committee of experts in health innovation and technology will screen each application to make sure that they meet all requirements and review each entry to decide which products or services are the most innovative.
Each judge is an industry expert in venture capitalism or technology market space and will not be the same individual who was involved in the screening process. There will be a minimum of three panelists judging each session.
Each participating Startup Pitch organization will have only one company representative presenting to the judges and one additional person must be off stage controlling the slide presentation. Louisville Innovation Summit Startup Pitch will not provide staff to support you with your stage presentation, so each company must have a second company representative to assist with the presentation.
Participating companies should not mention anything about their fundraising activities and plans in their presentations and presentation materials. Please reserve all conversations about fundraising to private one-on-one meetings with known accredited investors. Louisville Innovation Summit strongly encourages you to become familiar with the new rules under the JOBS Act and to consult experienced legal counsel about applicable securities regulations. By participating in the Louisville Innovation Summit Startup Pitch event, you agree that Louisville Innovation Summit Startup Pitch does not give investment legal advice and that you are responsible for ensuring your compliance with applicable securities laws.
Louisville Innovation Summit wants you to know that there are always certain concerns about intellectual property rights involved in competitions of this nature. Because Louisville Innovation Summit is not in a position to protect or advise you on your intellectual property rights, Louisville Innovation Summit cannot and does not take any responsibility for doing so. Please be aware that Louisville Innovation Summit does not require non-disclosure agreements or other confidentiality obligations from anyone involved in the Louisville Innovation Summit process. You, the applicant, are solely responsible for protecting your intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, etc.) in your idea.
Yes, participating companies will receive two (2) complimentary registrations for the Louisville Innovation Summit Conference.
