Event Details


Keep those new year's resolutions alive....Let's make something happen!

Coming up with an idea for a tech startup is one thing. However, getting investors to believe in your idea and give you money is an entirely different story.

Question: Is your startup pitch refined and ready to go?

Answer: The Pitchfest is a collaborative session for entrepreneurs and startups to practice and refine their pitch and create a positive first impression. We offer a supportive and friendly community environment with only the best of intentions - to help you make progress, share tips, feedback and receive help for your business idea.

If you don't have a business pitch, just come and network, learn or simply mingle with like minded friends!
