Event Details


Join us on June 26 for Open People Network`s 1st #PitchItDurham Event to network and watch entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to get real-time feedback and post-event assistance from industry experts and investors!


#PitchIt is an entrepreneur-led, grassroots event that provides startups with a platform to market their product or service, drive brand awareness (PR!), and practice their funding pitch. Our aim is to foster community support and help entrepreneurs secure investments, attract talent, and polish their presentation skills. Above all else it's the perfect venue for all attendees to network!

Find out more background at 


4 startups who are on the funding trail will pitch their companies to the audience. There will be several advisors (not "judges" since this isn't a competition) who will ask questions - but the audience will also have the chance to ask questions.

The companies will have 11 minutes to pitch, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After the 4 pitches are done, you'll have a chance to meet the entrepreneurs and others, as we open the session up for networking. More specifically, here's the agenda:

- 5:30 Start and networking
- 6pm Pitches
- 7pm Networking
- 7:30pm Wrap


If you are a startup actively seeking investment, or getting ready to raise funds, #PitchIt is a great forum for you. You'll have a chance to do your pitch to a room of other entrepreneurs and those who support entrepreneurs - you'll get their direct feedback about your pitch and / or product, which you can incorporate for future pitches. And wouldn't you rather learn your hard lessons with a room of friendlies instead of in front of a potential investor?

Being a #PitchIt participant gives you a chance to work on your pitch material and learn to answer tough questions *before* game time with an investor!

And if you're not looking for funding but want to support startups who are, come out, hear their pitches, ask some questions, and help them practice for their investor meetings.


To be one of the 4 companies, you must be actively raising money or about to start raising money. #PitchIt is open to all sectors and industries, so you don't need to be in tech to pitch.

If you're interested to pitch, DM Startup Durham with your contact info, company name, and confirmation that you're in the fundraising cycle (or about to start). We'll follow up with you from there.

See you on June 26!
