PitchForce Virtual Format

  • Each company will deliver a 1-minute elevator to the Investor Panelists. There will be up to two questions from the panel.

  • After each company’s elevator pitch the panel will vote on a scale of 1-5 as to how much they like the company.

  • The top 5 vote getters will get to do a 4-minute ppt followed by 4 minutes of question and answers followed by 4 minutes of non-rebuttal feedback. The panelists will vote again on the company based on their 4-minute ppt.

  • Winners will be announced following the pitches. Companies that do well often get meetings with the investors that result in beginning the process for Angel investment.
