When you want to scream your business to the world, but only your suburb can hear you, you need a leg up, which is what Buz on Biz is doing with South Aussie innovators.
This month, 21 eager entrepreneurs will pitch their business idea to local and global investors, collaborators, mentors and networkers at Thebarton Community Centre on Thursday 18th October.
Now in its second year, Concept to Reality is loosely based on the Shark Tank process of presenting a product or concept to a panel of business experts and in front of an audience.
Event organiser and founder at Founder at Buz On Biz Linda Elletson says the event is an excellent opportunity for local business hopefuls to gain support for their innovation.
“After the success of last year’s event, we are really looking forward to seeing what local South Australian innovators have for us this time,” she says. “We are seeking to connect great people with great ideas to investors who will help take their business from concept to reality.”
As well as having an opportunity to present to mentors, investors, professionals and collaborators, entry to Concept to Reality entitles entrants and audience members to two weeks in Buz on Biz’s Top Gun program, which includes business coaching.
“The idea for Concept to Reality was inspired by the TV show Shark Tank. I wanted to give South Australians a platform to showcase their ideas and innovations and really give them a chance to succeed,” Ms Elletson says. “This year, we have a new format which includes additional pitches, investors and an audience all to provide positive critique.”
From the application process, 21 ideas will be chosen and will have an opportunity to present to the panel on Thursday 18 October at the all day event.
