Ibex Investors Pitch Event
May 3, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Ibex Investors is actively seeking startups to invest in through Covid-19 period. Since Startups are uncomfortable approaching investors during this period, as well as not used to pitching remotely, We organised a pitch event for them via remote means.
Nicole Priel, Vice president at Ibex Investors defined what types of startups they are looking for, and what the criteria is in terms of stage, industry, amount raising and more. Within a week we rounded up around 65 startups that met the criteria. After reviewing the applications we narrowed it down to 15 who Ibex would be interested in hearing more from. We sent out an update to the participants that they are invited to pitch with a day and time.
Of the 15, 10 confirmed participation. We built the agenda, and given the goal of the event, decided on the format. 3 min pitch + 3-5 min Q&A. We conducted the event via remote platform. Our team managed the technicalities of putting the speakers on and taking them off screen.
Overall, the event was a success, the startups that pitched were within scope, and the participants both felt that they had a platform to present themselves, and that the fact that they were remote did not hinder their ability to pitch.
