The PitchForce Process

Each weekly PitchForce event gives eight to ten companies an opportunity to present their company and business model to and present to angel and early stage venture capitalists. Each presenter has exactly 4 minutes to present their most important information. The event agenda goes like this:

1 Minute Elevator Pitch

Each company delivers a 1 minute elevator pitch to the panelists.

Excellent 1 Minute Elevator Pitches

The Panel Votes

After each 1 minute elevator pitch, the panel votes on a scale of 1-5 as to how much they like the company.

4 Minute Presentations

The top 5 vote getters each make a four-minute PowerPoint presentation. Each 4 Minute presentation is followed by four minutes of question and answers, and then by eight to ten minutes of non-rebuttal panel feedback and recommendations for presentation improvement.

EXCELLENT 4 MINUTE PRESENTATIONS

The Panel Votes Again

Finally, the panelists vote on the quality of each four minute PowerPoint presentation and the probability for successfully winning financing.
