Å Pitch - Do good, do business

Å Pitch is the first Nordic pitching event under the slogan ‘do good, do business’. We promote startups and SMEs doing value-based business by providing technologies and solutions that ‘do good’, be it combating climate change, fostering sustainable development, developing peace tech, water, waste and food solutions, trustworthy AI, etc. We want to bring together businesses, NGOs, investors and public organisations to provide a platform for all these actors to meet and discuss co-operation, funding and financing as well as finding joint business opportunities.  

Å Pitch is an official side event of Shift Business Festival. Participation to Å Pitch is free of charge.

Seminar, matchmaking & startup competition

Å Pitch consists of three tracks.

Seminar at 11.30-15.30: NGOs  and investors share how businesses can cooperate with them and support organisations share how they can support companies in entering these, often challenging, markets.

Matchmaking at 12.30-15.30: Companies, investors and potential clients meet for 15 minute 1-to-1 meetings. 

Startup competition at 16.00-20.00: A dozen exciting startups from several countries will be pitching their ideas for 3 minutes each. The audience will mainly consist of investors, potential customers, and SME support organisations.  Three best pitches will sail away with prizes, the champion with the 1st prize of 10 000 €!
