Unpitch360

The anti-pitch competition is back! Unpitch is designed to facilitate connections between entrepreneurs and investors. It’s NOT about delivering an elevator pitch onstage, or trying to grab a few seconds with a VC in a hallway. Instead, Unpitch is about pressure-free lunch between investors and founders, discussions, meaningful feedback, and connections for the future.

Unpitch is totally free. The VCs are buying lunch for the entrepreneurs… because each of them acknowledges that without great founders, there are no successful investors.
