What are some good startup pitch competitions?

I am trying to see what options I have out there. I want to get my idea to people in person and allow my energy to help sell what I have to offer. Does anyone know of some good ones worth looking into?

HATCH Pitch is one of the better ones in my book. You get a virtual investment of 1 million if the judges pick you as the winner. Look it up, it might be something you would like to be a part of.

They were running a campaign to help small businesses. I can't remember when it started but the page seems to be gone. I think since the COVID lockdown has ended for a lot of states, they pulled back.

@edmund  I think you meant to post this in another thread. I am not sure which one though.


As for the OP, I am not familiar with these enough to suggest them but there are several that pop up with a simple google search.

@demarco I recently heard of this one. It is newer but it seems to get a lot of attention and a lot of creative minds attending it. I am not sure what they will be doing the rest of the year though with this virus being an issue.

@demarco I just had a look at this and it looks really interesting.


It seems they've had to postpone their upcoming event though so that's a shame. I'll have to check back in on it.

As of right now, none of them are operating because of Covid-19. I was looking into this in my area and everyone I have spoken with said they likely won't be holding anything until November, possibly not until 2021 for others.

I don't know of any that are running right now. I know there are several in the LA area as well as NYC. I have been to a few myself. I would check into this closer to the end of the year if you can wait.

Applications are closed for the year but I would check back with them next year. They invest 100k into new startups all the time.
