About Pitch Club

Pitch club is a unique mentoring and funding program hosted across the state of Michigan in cities such as Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing, and Grand Rapids. Pitch Club has ongoing monthly events that provide entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn from seasoned entrepreneurs and investors. The events are meant to educate, network, inspire and provide valuable experiences for being investable. As part of the events, 3 lucky entrepreneurs will receive the opportunity to practice their pitch and discuss business plans with funding experts, giving them a better understanding of the mindset of an investor. Presenters will be given milestones to complete. In addition to guidance from our host and guest experts, attendees will be given a survey to provide additional feedback to the presenters. Pitch club will also feature a guest keynote who can speak on topics related to starting a company, technology, and opportunities for entrepreneurs.

Pitch Club events feature 3 startup presentations, a pool of judges, and a keynote speaker. You can find more information about Pitch Club by visiting our website: www.PitchClubMI.com
