This is where the magic happens. Only the best of the best from the Semi-Finals are invited to pitch at the Finals and compete for grants. Ten teams will take the stage, but only four will take home a $5,000 cheque.
Concept $5K Semi-Finals
The top 10 teams across both nights of the Concept $5K Semi-Finals, as chosen by local startup community members, will be invited to pitch at the Concept $5K Finals for a chance to win one of four $5,000 grant prizes.
Night 1: Tuesday, November 5
Night 2: Wednesday, November 6
Concept $5K Finals
Watch emerging student entrepreneurs pitch live for $5K grant prizes. Each competitor has just 3 minutes to pitch their startup idea to a panel of esteemed judges!
Before the ten finalists pitch we always host a special guest speaker from the startup community. Don’t worry if you can’t make it in person, the event will be live-streamed!

We live-stream the Concept $5K Finals, but not the Concept $5K Semi-Finals. We also cover the events live on Instagram and Twitter so you can follow along.
Of course. We encourage all members of the public to come out.
Yes, at each competition there will be an opportunity to network with the competitors. Either during a break, or boothing after the winners are announced.
