About DSW Pitch Competition 2020
Welcome to the Denver Startup Week 2020 Pitch Challenge hosted by Denver Startup Week!
The fifth annual Denver Startup Week Pitch Challenge will highlight and harness our city's entrepreneurial energy. This year’s challenge takes the typical pitch competition and spins it on its head, inviting the 20,500+ attendees at DSW to cast their votes to determine the final six contenders.
With a prize package valued at up to $100,000 in cash, services, and products, this pitch competition will showcase the best ideas and the brightest startups from Denver’s innovation community!
This event is by the community, for the community. Submissions are entered by Denver startups looking for the opportunity to prove their idea’s worth, and each round of the competition will be judged by members of our community that have expertise in startup development, business, and growth. Last year, more than 150 startups submitted pitches of all kinds.
Semi-Finals will be hosted on Wednesday September 16th, 2020; followed by Finals the next day on September 17th, 2020.
Denver Startup Week is committed to keeping our community safe. With Denver Startup Week 2020 being 100% virtual, attendees will be able to watch the Semi-finals and Finals from the comfort of their homes. Startups that are selected to participate will pitch in-person to a small group of judges and a camera, allowing attendees to watch live. If you are selected and are unable to pitch in-person, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate pitching virtually. All CDC guidelines will be upheld.
