The Innovation Bay Founder Dinners (formerly known as Angel Dinners) are a great opportunity to get in front of a room full of qualified angel investors who, in addition to possible funding, also provide invaluable advice, introductions and mentorship to help you on your journey.

    • Team (who's in it and why will your team succeed)


Check out some of our Success Stories and view their video pitches to see examples of successful submissions.

The pitches are then reviewed by our angel community who vote on their favourites. The startups that receive the most votes will be invited to pitch at dinner, with one of the pitching spots guaranteed to a tech startup with at least one female founder.

Spread the word - and don't forget that provided you're happy to travel, you can submit your pitch for both Sydney and Perth.

We look forward to receiving your pitch!
