Our collaborative partners join us to create compelling, unique, value-add programming for all attendees. The event includes investor and founder educational tracks, tech stack presentations on new applications, digital marketing seminars and motivational keynotes.

Pitch events are one of the most popular ways to convene startup communities. They offer practice sessions for idea-, early- and growth-stage company founders, and help startups in the audience learn by example and feedback. These events are fundamentally important for creating a registry of the region’s emerging startups, building our mail list, and creating network connections for members.

Flywheel is teaming up with regional affiliates to bring investors and entrepreneurs together in our virtual pitch environment. We hold live pitch events every other month with virtual attendance as well, and collate startup information so investors have access to up-to-date investment opportunities.
