Coming up with an idea for a cool new tech or social media company is one thing. Getting investors to believe in your idea enough to give you money toward it is another thing entirely. Do you have your pitch refined and ready to go?

Our PitchFest is an AMAZING opportunity for entrepreneurs and startups to refine their pitch, create a positive first impression and practice your spiel. 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.

Don't have a business pitch? Come and network, learn or simply mingle with like minded friends!
