Emerging Technology Startups Message Board › Why Pitch at Ultra Light Startups?

Why Pitch at Ultra Light Startups?

Cris De L.
Cambridge, MA
Since 2008, over 500 entrepreneurs have pitched their startups at Ultra Light Startups. Many of these startups have gone on to significant financial success (growth, profitability, venture financing, etc). Some of the motivations behind this include:

  • To launch a new site/product
  • To get feedback from other entrepreneurs
  • To get feedback from users and potential users
  • To find co-founders, employees, and service providers
  • Press exposure (journalists often attend and write about the startups who pitch)
  • Strategic partnerships (representatives from established technology and media firms often attend and establish connections with startups)
  • Investment (though investment is not the focus of Ultra Light Startups, investors often attend and have made investments in companies they see pitch)
  • Finding mentors (entrepreneurs have established formal and informal mentorship relationships with panelists, experts, and successful entrepreneurs)
  • National and international exposure for your startup (in-person audiences in New York and Boston, plus thousands of viewers of the live video stream)



There are currently 5 tickets left to apply to pitch. Our Investor Panel will be providing constructive feedback to helping you get your business to the next stage!
