Pitchcrawl New York
Please note - after 11/28, ticket prices will increase!
Founders and investors, come to one of the most relevant events to build relationships in the industry. What is the Pitchcrawl like? It's like a speed dating cocktail party, but more interesting.
Everyone pitches. Investors and Founders both get 30 seconds to say who they are and what they do to the group. Investors and Founders break up into one on one sessions. Food is served in-between.
Tickets online are reserved for Startup Founders only. Please do not register if you do not have a startup and are looking for funding, you will be denied entry. If you are a service provider and are interested in attending the event, please e-mail us at the following address to discuss sponsorship opportunities. Investors and media, please contact email@example.com. The event is free for investors to attend; investors do not need to buy tickets.

A few event logistics:
• Do not bring Powerpoint files or presentations. Everyone will be pitching verbally only, this is an elevator pitch!
• After the startups have pitched, the investors will give an overview of what they are looking to invest in. They will then announce which startups that they want to meet with. After those meetings other startups not called are free to approach the investors to discuss their business plans.
• We will be sending an e-mail two days before the event with location details. The event is being held at a space near Soho.
• When submitting your company description on the ticket page, please note that this description will be provided to the investors.
