Our monthly #poctech gathering brings together our person of colour entrepreneur community.
Pitch #poctech is an opportunity for budding entrepreneurs and early stage startups to showcase what they are working on to the rest of the community and get feedback from our selected panellists consisting of experts and investors in the early stage VC field. It’s a chance to hone your pitch, hear feedback, encourage others to join you and get validation on your idea.
Applications are now closed for those to be on stage, but we have plenty of room left for those that want to come along. Even if you aren't on the pitching group, you can still come along and meet other people to give you feedback on your idea and to potentially join you as well. Or, if you want to just come along, meet founders and entrepreneurs and possibly see what companies could use your skills, then click the 'Learn More' button below to come and attend the event and networking session.
