What is Flash Pitching?
Flash Pitch is a monthly event series that brings together a diverse group of founders, investors and entrepreneurs together to watch startups pitch their ventures. Each company is given 2 minutes to pitch, followed by 3 minutes of Q&A and 3 minutes of feedback with the investors. We have seen that this method keeps founders concise, and effective; in turn keeping investors engaged. The network builds on top the event series as we develop a community of NYC's top entrepreneurs and investors.
Our core values are based around our 3 P's:
