Unpitch provides early stage entrepreneurs with access to investor feedback and guidance. This event counters the “pay-to-pitch” phenomenon and is free for participating entrepreneurs. Founders have conversations with two early-stage VCs, and gain access to all 30 participating investors. No pitches; no “yeses” or “nos”; just feedback, guidance, and connections.
Inspired by conversations at the 2013 MassTLC unConference, Unpitch is designed to facilitate connections between entrepreneurs and investors. It’s NOT about delivering an elevator pitch onstage, a “demo day” presentation, or trying to grab a few seconds with a venture capitalist in a conference hallway. Instead, Unpitch is a chance to have lunch with an Angel investor or VC in a casual, no-pressure environment, discuss your business, get meaningful feedback on your ideas, and make connections that will help you get to the next stage.
