Sign up for the chance to be a RISE startup and participate in PITCH

2 days. 2 stages. 40 of the best startups will battle it out to be crowned RISE’s best startup. Safe to say we’re stoked to be announcing PITCH and that applications are now open.

The 40 lucky startups chosen to compete in PITCH will present in front of highly distinguished investor panels, influential media, experienced business executives and thousands of RISE attendees. Startups will compete against each other over 2 days for the chance to present on Centre Stage. The winner will join an elite group of previous PITCH winners like YCombinator company AirHelp.


Fancy pitching your idea to the likes of Coca-Cola CTO Guy Wollaert, Danae Ringelmann of Indiegogo or Alfred Lin from Sequoia Capital? Applications are open to any startup that is a part of the RISE ALPHA or START programs and who have raised less than $3m in funding. Get your application in before they close on June 26. See you in HK.
