Pitch Fest

ISTE’s fourth annual Ed Tech Start-Up Pitch Fest is a unique opportunity in a fast-paced and entertaining environment to see and hear about creative and innovative ed tech apps and tools that may be available for schools and classrooms in the future.

Twelve finalists have been selected from dozens of applications to participate in the pitch fest in Denver. Pitch Fest participants in each of three rounds have 5-minutes each to present and then have two to three minutes to answer questions from the judges.

A different panel of judges will be seated for each round. The audience gets to vote along with the judges to determine the companies to move to the final round and then the ultimate Pitch Fest winners.

Round 1: Monday, June 27, 11 a.m.–12:15 p.m., 6 companies presenting; 2 selected to move to Final Round
Round 2: Monday, June 27, 2:30–3:45 p.m., 6 companies presenting; 2 selected to move to Final Round

Two winners to be selected: Most Innovative and Most Likely to Succeed
