As the leading grassroots entrepreneurship program in Silicon Mountain, Pitch Friday is an event powered by Mountain Hub that helps entrepreneurs and investors succeed. Founded in 2022 Pitch Friday began with three ideas – facilitating investments between entrepreneurs and investors , building the art of selling in entrepreneurs and showcasing local solutions for a sustainable digital economy.
Mountain Hub in its vision understood that for an entrepreneur to build a business from an idea to a successful business, they must learn and master the skills of sales, persuasion, and negotiation and learn how to adapt to rejection, failures, and actual market realities. These are realities that are not being taught in schools but Pitch Friday came in order to breach the gap.
Drawing over 2000+ participants locally and internationally, Pitch Friday is that event where entrepreneurs pitch or sell their ideas or business to an audience of users and investors; they get blunt and honest feedback and direction on how to be better. They also benefit from mentorship, funding, and all the right tools to take their idea from a startup to a thriving business.
Having held 23 successful editions attracting startups and entrepreneurs in diverse fields,the recent Pitch Friday event participant, Trivia Ninja emerged as one of the winners of the just ended Silicon Mountain Conference Pitch Contest which took place on day 2 of the conference at Activespaces Hub.
