Pitch Like A Girl @RISE

Description
Globally, women owned businesses account for only ~10% of VC investment.

That, we believe needs to change, and this is our humble effort to make a dent. We are looking to empower women with funding and help tip the scales in closing the gender gap.

10 female-founded startups get the opportunity to pitch to a panel of investors and judges, who will each invest in 1 or more team(s). Up to US$50,000 up for grabs in one night!

The first edition of Pitch like a Girl’, organised during RISE 2017, is a unique opportunity for women entrepreneurs, attending the conference from around the world, to return with their pockets heavier than when they arrived in Hong Kong.

10 outstanding entrepreneurs, from a range of industry sectors, will be selected from the applications via a thorough process led by a team of experienced investors and virtually coached by the organising team. At the event, each startup will have 3 minutes to pitch followed by 5 minutes of questions from our judges.

Each of our esteemed judges are acclaimed female investors in their own right.

So, if you’re a female entrepreneur - APPLY TO PITCH HERE!

Irrespective, REGISTER NOW to hear about great startups, listen to inspiring ladies and meet amazing investors and entrepreneurs from around the world - men and women alike!
