Campfire Collaborative Spaces announced series of pitch nights called, “Campfire Spark”. Campfire believes that entrepreneurs draw the most inspiration from their peers so to further encourage industry-focused collaborations, it kicked off 4 pitch nights starting with “Tech”, followed by “Fashion”, “Media”, and “Design & Architecture”.

The format of these pitch nights: 3-minutes pitching & 3-minutes Q&A. One winner and two runners up will be announced on the day. Each Campfire Spark event will be followed by a networking session with light refreshments provided.
