The first PitchForce of 2013 will be on January, 10th!

The next PitchForce event is January 10, 2013 and we have already begun to review and select startups to present. Think you have what it takes? Then apply as soon as possible as we are selecting companies on a rolling basis. Just complete the online application and we will let you know in the coming weeks if you accepted or not.

PitchForce is a series of monthly fund raising events for high tech, software, clean tech, medical device, biotech or medical diagnostic companies. The way it works is that ten companies are chosen each month to participate in PitchForce. Presenting companies will each have a demo table to have the opportunity to meet and network with angels, VCs and guests during the first hour. Attendees will then vote for their favorite company, and the top five will get to present to a distinguished panel of VCs. The panel chooses who they feel is the most promising startup. The winner gets a meeting with our Sponsoring Venture Capitalist, Emergence Capital Partners, for a full Pitch Session to the Emergence Capital team.
