Pitch Night — The Refiners Fleet #4

  • Parisoma 169 11th Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

If you're reading this right now, this is your informal invite to join us at The Refiners Fleet #4 "Pitch Night".


Pitch Night (our informal Demo Day event) is a public event for 150+ startup lovers to view our most recent program startups before they take flight on their own in the U.S. (the startups in our program are foreign founded). Guests/Attendees will be the first to see the 11 world-class startup pitches, meet the Fleet, and connect with other entrepreneurs/founders/investors/mentors.

You got to see them at Pick Your Fledglings the Fledglings in March... Time to find out how much their pitch, product, and tech has improved since Day 1 at our HQ in the heart of San Francisco.

11 startups will have to demo their startup in 3 minutes, articulate what their company is doing, and captivate you with how their startup will "make the world a better place" — Silicon Valley on HBO.

Pitch Night is an opportunity to bring The Refiners Community of entrepreneurs and supporters together to celebrate the conclusion of our Seed Fund Program.
