What is a Pitch Party?

A Pitch Party is a chance for founders to practice their pitch and receive feedback from investors.

Confirmed investors in attendance will include Gwen Edwards (Golden Seeds), Nancy Pfund (DBL Investors), Cameron Lester (Azure Capital Partners), and Bryce Roberts (O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures).

You can register for the event here. We have slots for 10 entrepreneurs to pitch for 3 minutes each. Send an email to by September 1, 2011 with the subject line “Pitch Party” and include your deck (PDF format) and a brief summary (3 to 5 sentences) on why you should be chosen to pitch. Notifications to those selected will be done on a rolling basis, so apply now!
