Trout Tank: Pitch Event

Join us for the Trout Tank Pitch Event: Denver Startup Week Edition, where you will hear entrepreneurs from the Trout Tank: Pitch Accelerator present their ideas in front of the local lending, investing, and business community. The pitch event will be followed by a unique networking opportunity that introduces you to the region’s funding and startup community. As a part of the networking, Trout Tank participants will be demoing their ideas for attendees. This not only creates an opportunity for participants that were not finalists to share their business, but for guests to engage with and learn more about the companies in the program.  

September 27th, 2017 | 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. | Networking and Demo Day to follow

"As an early-stage entrepreneur, it was extremely helpful to see where an idea needs to get to in order to be presentable and worthy of investment."
-Trout Tank Attendee  

Anyone that has a business and wants to see it succeed, you need to be here. There’s so many things that we didn't even know until we got here that they really helped establish what it takes to be a successful business. We don’t have holes in our business plan now.”
-Will Kelsay, Co-Founder of Dirt-Tri Magazine, Winner of Trout Tank Spring 2016

Competing in the Trout Tank is not just about getting in front of lenders and’s about the process of distilling your vision down to 10 to 15 slides and communicating your dream in a compelling fashion in five minutes. The most valuable part of the entire process is the journey you take to get yourself prepared. Give yourself and your business the gift of playing full out.”  
-Greg Durocher, Safe Ride 4 Kids, Winner of June 2015 Trout Tank
