What is pitchfest?

Australia Post Regional Pitchfest is your opportunity to pitch your business or idea to a live audience and expert panel for the chance to win a share of $100,000 in prizes. We are looking for regional Australia's innovators and entrepreneurs and are excited to be not only providing them a platform to launch from, but also a spotlight on the great opportunities in regional areas across the country.

Applicants will be given the opportunity to undertake pitch and business growth training. The top five applicants from each state and territory will take the stage between June and July 2017. Flights and accommodation are included for each finalist.

All state winners will be flown to Wagga Wagga for the national final on Friday 18th August.

If you want to see the next BIG idea pitched on stage, stay tuned on how to purchase your tickets to be part of the audience today!

Tickets on sale here soon.

Regional people are inherently innovative, they have to be! This is why our regions are full of such amazing ideas. It’s about time that we not only heard them but also celebrated them.
