Between now and April 6 Hispanicize 2013 is seeking videos with an "elevator pitch" (3 minutes or less) that provides a compelling overview of a business idea, product, or expansion. The videos should be no longer than 3 minutes and no fancy editing is required - just your 1-3 minute business pitch. Board members from the Diversity Tech Summit team will select the top 10 submissions to take part in the live competition and only contestants that will be at Hispanicize 2013 on April 9 will qualify to be a finalist.
The Hispanicize Disrupt contest is for entrepreneurs who want to expand their businesses into new arenas, launch new products, or fund new technology. Whether you're an established company looking to rapidly expand, an early-stage start-up seeking to get off the ground, or a blogger looking to scale up, this is your chance to not only win critical seed funding but also invaluable publicity on the largest stage in Hispanic new media.
The 10 finalists will give a live elevator pitch to an all-star panel of investor judges that include Andy Unanue, Managing Partner/Founder of AUA Private Equity and Jorge Consuegra of The Fearless Group. These judges will critique each contestant, ask questions and then select the Top 3 finalists. A mobile phone text vote from the audience will decide the winner. The winner will be awarded $1,000 by Sprint and will be prominently showcased during Hispanicize 2013.
