Hot House Project - Soft Pitch Event - Caroline Springs

The Hot House Project - ‘Soft Pitch' is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to book a one-on-one time slot with the Hot House Mentor

About this Event

The Hot House Project - ‘Soft Pitch’ event is an opportunity for prospective entrepreneurs to book a one-on-one time slot with the Hot House Mentors to discuss your 'hot idea'.

No matter what your business idea might be, this is your opportunity to get some professional, and confidential feedback. Book in a time that suits you, and aim to arrive at the venue 10 minutes earlier to ensure you get your full time.

Everyone who attends this event will get some feedback, and suitable ideas will be recommended to join the Hot House Project that will be commencing in with a welcome event on 3 December.

For any enquiries about the booking process please contact Melton City Council's Economic Development team on 9747 7200 or email

What to Bring?

All that is required is an open discussion of the following 3 questions:

1. What is your story? What are you trying to do?

2. Why? And what have you done so far?

3. What does success look like for you?

You may bring along any information or research you have prepared for your business idea (eg, market research, competitor analysis, sketches of your idea etc...).

If you don't have any additional information, that's fine, as long as you can explain your idea through the 3 questions.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There are no minimum age requirements, though we do ask that people under the age of 18 are accompanied by a responsible adult.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Quest Caroline Springs is in the heart of the Caroline Springs Business precinct. There is on-street parking on Caroline Boulevard, or it is a short walk across from the CS Square shopping centre. There are bus connections in to the Caroline Springs Business precinct which also connect up to the Caroline Springs Train Station.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. Once you have received your booking confirmation we will know to expect you.

COVID-19 Update

Whilst arrangements have been made and the preference is to facilitate the Soft Pitch Sessions face to face, in the event that this is not permitted due to ongoing government restrictions, all soft pitch sessions will be conducted online.

All registered participants will be notified if this change occurs and further information regarding accessing your online session will be communicated to you.
