Virtual Pitch Night Vancouver | March 19

Due to health and safety concerns from our venue, we have made the decision to move this event online. We hosted our first Virtual Pitch Night recently in Madrid, we are so excited to try it out with you! While the technical pieces are still being sorted, our intent is to broadcast the event live to all registered attendees. 
The pitchers are still preparing and our panel is looking forward to it, so we hope to see you there to engage with and cheer on your startup community in a virtual space!
Link to join the Webinar: COMING SOON 

UPDATE: PITCH LIST & PITCH WAITLIST ARE FULL. Visit volitionadvisors.com/events for other opportunities to pitch.

Words from Past Attendees:

“I was invited to join Pitch Night as a Feedback Panelist to provide insights to a competitive cohort of local and international entrepreneurs. Well organized, comprehensive, and approachable, I found the event productive and inspiring, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! “– Ludovica Mazzucato, MBA M.Sc. Sr. Advisor & C-suite Executive

Thank you so much for everything from Volition, you have made a huge difference in our journey and of course- in the community at large.” – Volition Pitch Night Winner

“It was nice to hear some innovative ideas and businesses being worked on locally. I really enjoyed hearing feedback on pitches to help pitchers practice in a supportive environment.” – Amy Henderson, HR Manager News360, Industry Pitch Night Attendee

“I really enjoyed the event and found it incredibly useful. I was actually pitching for my non profit again on Saturday and won an award which includes a cash prize for the organisation, and I think the feedback I got from the Volition event was really instrumental in helping me improve my pitch for that. So thank you!!” –  Volition Women’s Pitch Night Amsterdam Runner-Up
