Sign up to pitch to win a co-working spot for one month at CIC Rotterdam at this Pitch Night!

Pitch Night will take place on August 26th from 17:00-18:00h at Venture Café Rotterdam (in-person pitches only!).

You will get to pitch in front of our expert jury and a small audience, all in a safe environment. Plus: you get to know more about the great work of some colleague-entrepreneurs!

You will present your business to our panel of experts, and they will determine who will win the prize: a co-working spot at CIC Rotterdam for max. 2 persons. This prize will go to the entrepreneur who is, according to our jury, working on the most promising venture of 2021!

Your Pitch

  • You get 3 minutes to pitch your business, and the jury members get 3 minutes to ask you questions.
  • Slides are allowed, there is a tv screen present but note that slides should not contain a lot of text and serve the sole purpose to support your story
  • Hand outs for jury members are allowed
  • The session will be recorded (in full or in part)

The jury will be judging your business on the innovativeness of your idea, your value proposition, business model and market size plus overall potential (the final pitch criteria will be sent to you after registering to pitch). ​
