Agenda

Background

What’s the Schedule?

We have designed the APPortunity 2021 program with a lot of new ideas in order to do something different.  Everyone is bored attending the same format virtual events and we wanted to make APPortunity 2021 something truly amazing that will brighten your life.

APPortunity is in three parts spread over three weeks:

Part 1 – Pitches: For an hour a day presenters unveil their Problem and Solution Pitches to the audience and post them to the leader board for voting. The audience can vote Problem Pitches into the Hackathon, and Solution Pitches into the Shark Tank Plus. Hackathon participants use the social platform to find their tribe and form teams.

Part 2 – Hackathon: Teams formed during the Pitches pre-event take on challenges derived from the Problem Pitches on the leaderboard. They iterate solutions in combination with mentors and industry experts over 2 days, and the winners move on to the Shark Tank Plus which takes place during…

Part 3 – APPortunity Event: 3 consecutive days of examination and discussion of what we have learned and how many new opportunities we have surfaced. Each day will live stream 5 to 6 hours of content, all available on demand so you can manage other commitments around the event schedule. Highlights include Shark Tank Plus “Driven By Demand”, where buyers and investors both review the top technical solutions and make low-risk high-ROI financial decisions, and an Awards show where everyone’s contributions are celebrated!
