Can my organization partner with you for your next Pitch Night?

We are accepting demo/information tabling applications for our upcoming Pitch Night: September 10, 2019.

Pitch Nights aren’t a typical networking event, so please think beyond the standard info table with brochure display and find on-theme engaging ways to make meaningful connections with attendees. Unique approaches tend to be the most engaging (think games, interactive demos, whatever you think will catch people’s eyes and make them want to connect!).

Are you up for the challenge? Feel free to fill out our application form below (or click this link).

What is are Pitch Nights?

Pitch Nights at The Roxbury Innovation Center, modeled off of the original Venture Café Thursdays in Kendall Square, are quarterly events for the entrepreneurship community. Pitch Nights are designed to emphasize innovation across industries, foster collaboration, strengthen connections, and make great ideas come to life. Pitch Nights are always free + open to the public.

Who can attend Pitch Night?

We believe that innovation is for everyone — whether you’re an entrepreneur, an artist, a scientist, or a student. Our mission is to help those people succeed by fostering spaces, connections, and conversations to bring their ideas to life so please join us!

Never been to a Roxbury innovation Center Pitch Night?

Each Pitch Night looks a little bit different. In the past, Café Nights have featured a combination of workshops, panels, office hours, interactive exhibits and open networking. We have slightly changed to the Pitch Night model to give the public the opportunity to get their businessses seen. 

Come mix, mingle, explore, and learn from members of Boston’s diverse innovation ecosystem and get a chance to walk away with insight as well as a prize.

All Pitch Night programming is free + open to the public.
