PITCH LOUNGE - Event Formats

Type A: Advisor Panel - Pitch Feedback Events

Seize a chance to get investor pitch ready by presenting in an informal setting and getting helpful feedback from a panel of experts including those who are F&B focused, excited founders, angel investors/finance professionals, pitch/communication coaches, etc.

This pitching opportunity suits early-stage startups, pre- or post-investment, or revenue. We have even hosted Seed startups wanting to come and receive feedback on their new Seed investor pitch deck to polish it later in advance of investor meetings, where pitch deck and presenting feedback are often in short supply.

No investors are actively invited. However, we usually host 1-2 investment industry professionals on the panel and investors might register to attend as audience members.

For more information please refer to our FAQ document.

Type B: Investor Panel - Pitch Demo Events

Our demo day-style F&B pitch events have since August 2020 in largely the same successful format.

Usually, we host (four-to-six) 5-minute startup pitches and Q&A rounds with an investor panel. We also offer end-of-event breakout room networking, one room dedicated to each presenting company - startup or sponsor. It includes a more generous time allocation than most demo days. Applications are open and startups will be shortlisted on a rolling basis.

There is a wider value offering than the feedback events including pre-event and post-event marketing of your investment raise and a dedicated digital networking room during the event as well as investor introductions and an annotated registration list is shared post-event.

For more information and to register your interest as startup, sponsor, investor or panelist, please email
