Powderkeg Pitch Night
Powderkeg Pitch Night
Few industries have sparked as much growth in Indianapolis’ tech community as marketing technology. Take ExactTarget, whose orange culture attracted MarTech talent from around the country and set the stage for a $2.5 billion exit to Salesforce in 2013. That momentum has continued with exits such as:

Angie’s List merging with Home Advisor.
Fizziology’s acquisition by MarketCast.
Delivra merging with Emma and Campaign Monitor.
Want to meet the MarTech leaders who made exits like these happen, and hear about their next ventures? Then come to our biggest Pitch Night of the year, a celebration of all things MarTech.

It’s happening on Thursday, February 28th starting at 5:00 PM at The Vogue. Get all the details below …

* Pitch Night, Shark Tank Style *
If you’ve never experienced a Powderkeg pitch night, now’s your opportunity to catch four of the most exciting companies in the Midwest. Each startup will have just 5 minutes on stage to pitch their startup—no exceptions. It’s sort of like the hit TV show Shark Tank, but without the ego and showbiz.

* Meet the Advisors *
Each founder will have 5 minutes of Q&A from our panel of investors and entrepreneurs after their pitch. You’ll learn how investors think and how founders respond on the fly. Our “sharks” bring diverse backgrounds and perspectives, which is sure to make for interesting questions and discussion …
