Over the past three years, we've learned that fundraising, whether equity or non-dilutive, is a clear pain point for entrepreneurs and startups at any stage. Our team provides coaching and consulting services to improve your pitch and presentation, and help you navigate the world of grants and funding proposals.

Our Pitch Nights provide a comfortable space to receive feedback to improve your pitch and increase your chance of success. The top pitchers from each event, as voted by the audience, win prizes from event sponsors and are awarded an opportunity to pitch to investors.

  • 60-100 audience members per event
