Why pitch?

It's been said that pitching does not guarantee that a startup will get funded. That may be true. But pitching in a public venue will get you publicity, support, and feedback from the community.

Get noticed by potential partners, supporters and customers. If you do it right, you may get noticed by someone who may recommend you to THE ONE. Having a good product to begin with and a solid startup team will increase your chances of success.

Building a relationship with the right mentor or investor who understands your niche is another way to boost your chances. The more you pitch, the more you will ensure that your product meets stringent public expectations. Know what makes your startup rise above the noise, speak the right language to your target audience, and good luck!
