Organised by:

Enactus Macquarie are proud to present PitchFest!

Bring YOUR creative, innovative and sustainable social enterprise ideas to life. WE want to hear from you!
The problem statement? "How can we make the world a more sustainable place?"

PitchFest will run from 1pm-7pm, with workshops to sharpen your pitching skills, and help you develop your idea. Plus, we have guest speakers to inspire your inner entrepreneur!

The winner of the competition will have the incentive to work with a well developed student society on campus (us), a team to help make the idea come to life, and the chance to present at an annual national event to a panel of potential employers, with funds to help develop projects.

More speakers will be announced closer to the date, so be sure to register and save the date to learn from some industry experts!

Not pitching on the day? We’ve got you sorted with workshops to sharpen your skills, and guest speakers followed by a Q&A session! Did we mention there will be food? Don't miss this exciting opportunity to network with business professionals and learn some valuable skills that you can take with you throughout your career.

Our guest speakers include Ryan Ong, an active investor based in Sydney. He works closely with accelerator programs, angel investor groups and venture capital fund managers to co-invest in early stage tech opportunities.
