Presentation Format

The first hour of PitchForce presenting companies will have a demo table to showcase their company to investors and guests. During this time attendees will vote for their favorite companies. The top five companies will  present to a panel of Angels and VCs and one bottom five company will be chosen by our panel to come back in as a wild card. The panel makes this decision after the bottom five companies present their 1-minute elevator pitch.

The six selected companies will deliver a 4-minute presentation followed by 4-minutes of questions and answers and 4-minutes of feedback. The panel then votes on a scale of 1-5.
