Join the 25% Who Are Funded at The NextWomen Pitch Event

The NextWomen invite you to a Pitch Afternoon with Investors, aiming to support women-led businesses prepare and practice their investment pitches with a real panel of investors.

The event takes place on November 2nd 2012 in Amersfoort, The Netherlands.

The Pitch Events are highly anticipated and appreciated events, held regularly at the request of our readers since the The NextWomen began at the end of 2008. More than 100 female entrepreneurs have pitched at our events and 25% go on to get funding.

The event will give ten women founders (experienced or with little or no experience in fundraising) a first review of their business plan by experts and investors. After practicing their pitch in a friendly morning workshop environment, the founders will present to the experienced investors on the judging panel, to be offered first-hand insights and feedback. The event also includes two inspiring keynotes from an investor and an entrepreneur, and provides attendees with an excellent networking opportunity full of possibilities to make lasting business connections.
