AMP's 2017 Amplify Ignite PhD Pitch Competition


Ignite is looking for 20 of Australia’s boldest, brightest PhD students with big ideas, big vision and their sights set on the big stage. So if you know a PhD student whose idea explores ‘The Edge of the Possible’, is truly disruptive and provides an original solution to a universal problem, encourage them to pitch their idea in 150 seconds or less for a shot winning up to $7000.

AMPs Amplify Ignite program helps participants explore their creative side, think differently, gain confidence, and experience the rush and spontaneity of pitching.

In the lead-up to pitch night on Tuesday 6 June 2017, 20 participating finalists will have the chance to work with a team of mentors – an eclectic bunch of professionals who will help with the transformation from students to stars.

The Amplify Ignite PhD Pitch Evening is a one night only special event that will be staged in front of a live audience at an iconic inner city venue. Our participants will get to experience the commotion of backstage and the urgency of a live pitch performance as they test their theories in front of a packed venue.
