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
