March 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Women’s Pitch Night provides a comfortable space for up to eight women-identified entrepreneurs to gain practical experience and valuable feedback on their 3-minute pitch and presentation (in English), in front of an industry feedback panel and live audience (all genders welcome).
While pitchers will each gain critical tips and feedback on their pitch, the goal is for all attendees to walk away with new connections and knowledge to advance their opportunities on a global scale.

Words from Past Attendees:
“In my experience, there isn’t too much room to make a pitch event completely unique but this event really stuck out as an especially welcoming and valuable event for everyone attending. The stage of the startups ranged widely and Melanie did a fantastic job of creating an environment for pitchers, sponsors, panelists, and attendees to feel comfortable and participate equally.” – Techstars Amsterdam, Women’s Pitch Night Sponsor
“I was surprised because I felt very relaxed at the Women’s Pitch.The organizers and the panelists were very welcoming and I actually found out I knew already one of the panelists, so it was nice to see a familiar face there too. “ – Elissa Grohne, Women’s Pitch Night Pitcher
“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!!” – Women’s Pitch Night Amsterdam Pitcher
