Startup Pitch Night

60 Second pitches. Here is the suggested format that we recommend you use:

  • Who are you and what is your background? (5-10 Seconds)
  • What is the problem that your product is solving? Or, begin with a story (10-20Seconds)
  • Explain the product and how it solves the problem (10-20 seconds)
  • Who do you need on your team (a developer, marketing, designer?) (5-10 seconds)


Location for the Meetup: 35th Floor Cafe.

If we have any time remaining after being done with the pitches, that will be used for networking.

Note: We hope you can find your co-founders here. However, please remember that the attendees are just those who want to come and we might have a very uneven mix of people, in terms of their skills.

Could you please use the following link and fill in whether you plan on making a pitch at the Meetup:

PS: RSVP will close at noon (EST) Tuesday to allow time for the security to process all the access request.

    Very well organized, with 60 second pitches clearly letting the better pitches to raise and less-refined ones to sink. Some very interesting pitches. Good networking.

    The event was well run and exactly as advertised - a meeting to pitch your start-up in a minute or less. It came and went so fast, there was really no time to get nervous. Watching everyone's pitch also served as a great way to meet people that were interesting to talk with.

    At this early concept stage, this well-structured evening gave me everything I needed to frame my challenges and visualize needed next steps. I found it surprisingly easy, as a tech novice, to tap into this resourceful, creative, nice group of professionals. Thank you.

    It seems that some of you only have your first name for your Meetup Profile. The user list that we get is based on that and I have problems getting access for you to the building. Here is a list of you who needs to provide me their full name. Also, those of you bringing in guests, I need the full name of the guest too.

    If your name is listed here, could you please email me at [masked] with your full name (middle initials not required) - also of the guests. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Those of you who have not already done so, could you please fill out this form (it has one question) so that we can get an idea for a headcount of how many people are going to make a pitch.

    There is a growing open science movement that's raising awareness about controversial practices in peer review and publishing.

    As gatekeepers, publishing companies systemically impose limitations and restrictions to the flow of scientific literature, whereas today's web technologies present unprecedented opportunities for scientific progress.

    Coming from an academic background in science and technology, I've undertaken an initiative to design a Cloud Review System that allows researchers to publish, review, and share papers. Fortified with a semantic rating system and activity & impact tracking, it is an open-sourced and crowd-powered solution to an inevitable shift in how sciences operate.

    I'm seeking developers and other team members who are passionate about empowerment through knowledge. If interested, please contact me through or at [masked]

    My name is Brian and I am a marketing/finance guy looking to build cool things.

    With new places to shop online appearing everyday, people need 1 cohesive platform to share their online shopping/browsing with friends in a dedicated space. People also need a way to keep track of and compare things they have come across and purchased. will provide a truly global and immersive social shopping experience by integrating your existing social networks with the best products/deals that you find anywhere online. MoreAgora allows you to share the best of the web with your friends and foster social interaction around commerce (existing sharing options tend to limit your options to interact with your friends around an ecommerce item).

    I am looking for a technical co-founder to help me continue to build out the product to an mvp and launch within the next few months.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
