Pitch & Awards
Besides gaining visibility, a pitch can be quite lucrative to access pre-seed funding whilst standing in the spotlight. When it comes down to pitching your startup or product and receiving awards for your pitch, you could be pitching all year long. What are the options and how do you choose which ones are most relevant for you in the current phase? How can you turn an elevator pitch into startup funding? And last but not least, what makes a good pitch?
Improve your pitch with several initiatives from the ImpactCity program:
