Event Details

Channel your inner Warren Buffett, and decide how to invest your ‘cash’!

Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Stone & Chalk bring you the Crocodile Pit.

We've assembled five of Australia's best fintech startups for you to hear from. And five of Australia’s best venture capitalists and investors, to help you judge them.

Each startup will have five minutes to ‘pitch’ their business to you. You'll be given $500k of fantasy cash to ‘invest’ in the companies that you think will give you the best return. 

Pay attention to the valuation. The best deals are a combination of team, market, product and what you think is good value for your money. Think you can do it? See you in the Crocodile Pit. Proudly sponsored by Stone & Chalk and AWS, Crocodile Pit is brought to you as part of Vivid Sydney.
