The Global Pitch Summit, an innovative international TV ideas show, lands in South Australia directly from Hollywood on Sunday, August 13. The Adelaide Convention Centre will be the location for the first audition phase of the Australian series to be filmed in front of a capacity live audience, and every South Australian with an idea and the desire to see it succeed is invited to register at Nationwide filming in all capital cities will follow and then the format will be taken worldwide.

This new reality TV series is an engaging blend of American Idol, Shark Tank, and The Apprentice. The show will give the people of South Australia a voice, and the chance at fortune and fame.

This opportunity is for ANYONE with an IDEA... about ANYTHING.

NOTE: No business, commercial or entrepreneurial experience is necessary. From novices through to experienced campaigners, EVERYONE is welcome. Share your idea (we’ve all got at least one!), unlock your potential, tell us your story – Change Your Life!

Could you do with a personal and financial makeover? Are you fed up with working a full week and making other people wealthy? Have you been working on a concept for years but don’t have access to funding?

Have you got an idea but you just don’t know how to make it a reality?

The Global Pitch Summit will take attendees from ideas phase to successful launch. We’ll bring their vision – no matter how bold or unrefined – to life through our world-class panel, proven capital raising process and exciting international TV show.

If you have an idea, tell us abut it … and we’ll provide business support, mentoring and access to millions of dollars in funding. We are combing the globe to unearth (and fund)new ideas. We are searching for diamonds-in-the-rough who could be harboring the next great invention, business concept or innovation.

The initial nation-wide audition process features potential contestants pitching their idea. No need for a sound business background, just a creative mindset and the desire to be heard. An embarrassing lack of business knowledge isn’t frowned upon. A polished pitch is also not a pre-requisite nor is negotiation  skills.

Pitch Your Idea

Get access to millions of dollars in development funding. Change your life.

Unlike most reality TV shows we are not searching for someone with a distinctive talent or sublime singing voice, rather we are on the hunt for ANYONE and EVERYONE who has an idea. It’s as simple as that. Throughout the series viewers will witness a total transformation of the cast – a personal and financial makeover.

Finally, a TV show that embraces the untapped potential of the general public to discover Australia’s next creative genius. Registrations are now open to South Australian residents. Spots are limited. All registrants will be part of a live audience and will receive business advice and mentoring from leaders in the South Australian corporate sector.
