With the exception of the mic not working properly for the first couple of presenters, Ideas on Tap was a rousing success. The event was jam packed with wall to wall people as Vancouver’s social media scene came out for a night of networking, drinking and listening to people pitch from a milk crate. The event was held at the Yaletown Brewing Company, which worked out really well because I was meeting up with Wall Street whiz kid Tim Sykes after and there are tons of restaurants in the area.
This event featured a competition where five contestants deliver a 60 second elevator pitch from a milk crate. The winner is chosen by the audience based on cheers and beer taps. The pitch winner was Andre Charland of Nitobi Inc. The next Ideas on Tap is schedule for January. See you there!
