Channel Program’s Channel Pitch & Connectwise’s PitchIT have teamed up on an event: The Battle Royale – Channel Edition which will take place virtually over 2 days (August 30th and Sept. 1st) at 1 P.M. EST. Each part is approximately 90 minutes running time.
It will combine elements of both programs into an event that gives 18 emerging vendors a unique opportunity to present their offerings in front of an audience of future anonymous buyers (MSPs/ISPs/MSSPs). Nine vendors will take part on Aug 30th and the remaining nine vendors will take part on September 1st.
The format is simple and to the point, with each vendor presenting their value proposition to the entire audience in five minutes. The anonymous audience members will get the chance to give these emerging vendors priceless, direct feedback and shape future roadmaps of how these companies go to market in the channel.
A few things that will make The Battle Royale – Channel Edition different from the traditional monthly Channel Pitch events include:
- All participants are considered emerging vendors.
- Extra succinct 5-minute pitches (versus the traditional 7 minutes)
- New audience poll questions, developed specifically for this event
- Two-day format (Aug. 30th & Sept. 1st), with 90-minute run time per event
- Opportunity to vote for which companies become the three finalists to present their solutions on the center stage at IT Nation Connect on November 9-11, 2022, for a Grand Prize of $70,000!
Matt Solomon, Co-Founder/CBDO of Channel Program explained, “As Sean Lardo and I discussed and developed this idea over the last couple of months; we became increasingly excited about the opportunity to build a unique event that provides massive value to the participating vendors and IT professionals audience, in a way that is fun, interactive and helps the industry to collectively grow together.”
Sean Lardo, ConnectWise Evangelist adds, “It was an obvious choice to partner with Channel Program. Their strong commitment to promoting emerging technology companies aligns perfectly with our PitchIT program. Matt has his finger on the pulse of these vendors, speaks their language, and will do a great job getting the most out of our contestants. We appreciate Channel Program sharing their venue and are excited to see the pitches.”
