What to Expect
On July 29th, join us in cheering on eight entrepreneurs from across British Columbia, who will brave the virtual ‘stage’ to test out their startup pitch, with the goal of getting strategic feedback from leaders in the Canadian startup ecosystem.
These entrepreneurs will have 3-minutes to present their pitch, in front of an industry panel and ‘live’ audience.
As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to vote on the audience top pitch, as well as engage with pitchers and panel via polls, Q&A and Live Chat. And, if you feel you can support the pitcher or just want to connect, we’ll provide space for that as well.
For our part, we commit to creating a comfortable and engaging space for all who attend.

Words from past attendees:
“Thanks for hosting a really great event today in Amsterdam! I’ve attended many many pitch events and I thought today’s was in its own class as far as comfortable environment and constructive feedback for the pitchers.” – Kelly Adam
“I really enjoyed the event and found it incredibly useful. I was actually pitching for my non profit again [the next weekend] 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!!” – Women’s Pitch Night Amsterdam runner-up
“I‘m really thankful to have had the opportunity to pitch at Volition Pitch Nights because that really changed the course of my pitching career. I never thought I would be so comfortable pitching. I definitely recommend the pitch nights to every entrepreneur!” – Andrei Matei, Founfer of Robbox
