Q: How do we apply to pitch at Pitch Night?

A: You can signup to pitch at the event. No online registration required.

Q: What is the dress code?

A: Feel free to dress as you wish. Typically, there's everything from very casual to highly professional and everything in-between.

Q: Does everyone that attends pitch?

A: No! Some are curious, some want to watch, some come to pitch, and some decide during the event to pitch!


Please note:  Whether you RSVP to attend or to pitch, you may change your mind anytime!  Oftentimes, our attendees decide during the event to get up and practice their pitch.  It's a fun and vibrant event - the format is unique and some members return every month!  We ask now if you are planning to attend or pitch just to get a general idea of what the proportion is likely to be.



Join us May 13th as we welcome our guest speaker Mary Liu to our group to give an interactive presentation on effective business networking - with time for one-to-one practice sessions with your peers.

Learn from a local Visibility Business Coach, accomplished author, and experienced speaker about the ins and outs of what it takes to cultivate new contacts you make, both effectively and efficiently.  Everything she presents tonight is equally applicable to both men and women.

Startup Pitch Night provides the platform for early stage startups to practice and improve their startup pitch, gives startups anonymous peer-based feedback, and encourages trial and error without the requirement to apply and be accepted amongst a few to pitch – all within a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Startup Pitch Night is a vibrant and fun event with high variety, speed, and brevity at its core, coupled with a short talk on the next steps after the refinement of the pitch, from a startup industry leader.
