By getting up on stage and pitching your business idea and model, in this case to the panel of experts we have put together for TechPitch 4.5, you will gain exposure and interest from both potential users and potential funders, as well as from media in general. And you get to practise and receive immediate feedback on your pitch.

The pitch session is not about achieving funding immediately, but gaining interest, making connections, and hopefully starting relevant discussions, so if you like the idea of pitching you will be good!

Pitches at 2Pears events are free-of-charge for the pitching companies, which means that the person pitching receives a complimentary ticket for the event. All other company members and interested parties will be required to purchase tickets at best available rate, to attend the event.
