Sure, an evening of early-stage tech pitches might not sound like an uproariously good time, but add in a panel of sharp-witted comedians and veteran VC investors, and that's just what you get! During the show, four awesome founders of early-stage companies will present their pitch decks, then VCs, advisors, and comedians grill them with questions and roast the pitches. We'll also offer a speed round during the show for a few lucky audience members to pitch their company ideas. Will things stay sweet, or turn salty? Who knows, it may even end up a little spicy. This event also features time for chatting, networking and drinks before and after the show.

Please RSVP here or you will not be able to enter the event:
Admission is $25 a person.

Thank you to Allan Rodgers from the amazing The Hub for providing the space; check out their delicious New Zealand-influenced menu.
