Regional Pitchfest is proud to announce Jobs for NSW as the naming rights sponsor for the 2019 Jobs for NSW Regional Pitchfest event which will include up to 11 local pitching competitions around NSW.

All regional and rural NSW residents are invited to get involved in the 2019 Jobs for NSW Regional Pitchfest. This is your opportunity to pitch your business to a live audience and expert panel for the chance to win a fully funded three-day bootcamp in Sydney, and to go in the running for a share of $20k in prizes.

We are looking for regional New South Wales’ innovators and entrepreneurs and we 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 state.


The Jobs for NSW Regional Pitchfest grassroots events will take place in up to 11 locations across regional and rural New South Wales in June 2019. The winner of each of the local pitching events will be given the opportunity to participate in a 3-day bootcamp in Sydney (travel and accommodation included for each winner). On the final day of the bootcamp our local pitching event winners will compete for one of 5 spots in the NSW State Final.

The competition will culminate with the top 5 applicants competing at the Jobs for NSW Regional Pitchfest state final taking place in Wagga Wagga on Thursday 5th September 2019. The winner will walk away with an amazing prize pool including, $7,500 in cash, a funded and curated trip overseas.
