DIF Pitch Club Preview of 2018 featured events

Hear a selection of the key events of this year’s festival give their 5 minute pitch with only 1 slide to guide them. The DIF Pitch Club kicks off each day of the DIF Hub program and is an opportunity for tech entrepreneurs to share their story on how they use digital tools to make business and society better. Start your day and hear the latest ideas from those driving digital innovation in Melbourne.

DIF Hub co-creation workshop

The 2018 DIF Hub will host 40 sessions over 10 days of the festival from Monday 28 August to Friday 7 September 10.00am – 7.30pm at Curate Space in the heart of the Melbourne CBD.

Each day 4 sessions are on offer, kick off with the DIF pitch club where entrepreneurs spruik their latest idea; enjoy a lunch ‘n’ learn session with industry experts; join in a deep dive discussion with thought leaders and at the end wind down and hear lessons learned from inspiring entrepreneurs. Each session will be unique and provide opportunities to connect and explore how technology is making a difference in Melbourne.

Curation of the program will be co-created via the festival management platform, so all hosts are aware of topics and speakers to avoid doubling up and ensure that the series is as representative of the vibrant local ecosystem as possible. Each day will have a theme that brings together the sessions into a mini-conference.


What's the deal?

Pitch Club Speakers

It’s wonderful to have you leading the DIF program this year and we invite you to give your pitch. These will be recorded to be used in social media campaigns and create the DIF 2018 Video. So it’s a great opportunity to promote your event in person and online. A limited number of spots are available so please RSVP to this invite and indicate if you want to pitch.
