HR Ideathon + pitchfest 2016

Registration: $100 - Click here to register!


Preceding the HR TechXpo, the HR Innovation Ideathon + Pitchfest 2016 will bring together HR leaders, startups and students in an intimate environment to tackle some of HR's top challenges.  No coding required!

Attendees will split up into teams consisting of HR leaders, startups and students.  The goal will be to identify a problem, develop a solution and pitch the idea to a panel of judges.

HR leaders will gain insight into new technologies and strategies disrupting the HR space, startups will connect with potential customers to understand their challenges firsthand, and students will apply their knowledge in the real world ... and maybe even land their first job!

> The top 3 startups will get to pitch on stage at the HR TechXpo
> The winner of the Pitchfest will get a free booth at the HR TechXpo.
> The winner of the Ideathon will be interviewed at the live radio talk show by Greg Ketchum at the HR TechXpo
