Volition Events

We manage and host monthly Pitch Nights in Vancouver for entrepreneurs to gain practical experience and valuable feedback on their investor pitch, in front of a live audience and industry panel. These events focus on "the flirt", a.k.a. the 90-second to 3-minute pitch, crafted to catch an investors eye.

Our original Pitch Nights launched in 2016 in Vancouver, and have expanded to include the extremely popular Women's Pitch Night, Industry Pitch Night, and Startup Showdown events. In 2018 we are scaling to Calgary, Toronto, Amsterdam, and Seattle. See you there!

  • 60-100 audience members per event
  • 10 to 15 companies pitching per event
  • 300+ pitches and over 1700 attendees since launch
