Women’s Pitch Night Vancouver | Feb 18
Join us on February 18th for our next Women’s Pitch Night Vancouver!
Women’s Pitch Night’s have consistently sold out since their launch in 2017, and promise a fantastic evening of networking and learning with the Vancouver startup community.
Volition have hosted 76 Pitch Nights across Canada, the U.S., and Europe and have been met with incredible support and success, with 3900+ audience members and over 442 startups pitching at these events. This event provides a comfortable space for entrepreneurs to gain practical experience and valuable feedback on their 3-minute pitch and presentation, in front of an industry panel and live audience (all genders welcome).

Words from Past Attendees:
“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. The fact that two “wildcard” pitches spontaneously volunteered to pitch after the 6 other pitches is a testament to that.” – Kelly Adam (Partner/Sponsor), Women’s Pitch Event Amsterdam
“I was surprised because I felt very relaxed at the Women’s Pitch Night. It was a smaller, intimate group, not hundreds of people, so I found it was really nice. Also, I liked that it was all women, it was less intimidating than other pitch events I’ve done. 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 winner
“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 runner-up
“Wednesday night was the first Pitch night I have attended; I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Each person that got up to give their pitch was met with fantastic feedback from a supportive panel – I’m sure everyone in the audience went away having learnt something too. It was great to see the winners at the end of the event and to hear about the amazing opportunities that are in store for them. Definitely looking forward to the next Pitch Night!” – Samantha Crane, Senior HR Coordinator Women in Tech World
