UPPSTART has been holding an early stage startup pitching competition for over 7 years, and some of the previous startups presenting can be seen on youtube here.

Many of the startups that have presented have gone on to raise capital to scale their companies, and many were as a direct result of connections they made at the event.

Aside from giving startups free exposure to investors (we will have hundreds attending UPPSTART from all over the world and many will participate in this session) often startups taking part or winning the competition are features in the press (this year we have journalists from a range of well known tech publications attending for example Techcrunch, Tech.eu, Product Hunt, Forbes, etc)

To be selected to pitch in this event you must apply to our Early Stage Investor Pitching invite-only session (by simply registering a free ticket to UPPSTART) and we will contact you if you are one of the lucky few to pitch on our main stage publicly.

This event is open to everyone attending UPPSTART to watch, and the audience will be voting interactively on the who the winner is!
