VU Startup Pitch meetings: Every last Thursday of the month, from 4 to 5 pm, the VU Entrepreneurial & Impact team organises a pitch moment for startups at VU. All startups with ambitions to join the VU startup ecosystem are invited to pitch their business ideas to the jury. The jury consists of (former) entrepreneurs, business developers or investors from Demonstrator Lab, ASIF Ventures, VU alumni entrepreneurs and VU Entrepreneurship & Impact team.

The pitches are a great opportunity for your startup to apply for the Amsterdam Startup Launch, for the Amsterdam Best Student Startup Competition, or to apply for an office space in the vibrant VU StartHub!

The VU Startup Pitch meetings are for all VU startups with ambitions to join the VU startup ecosystem. You will get the opportunity to pitch your business ideas to an inspiring jury.

This way, you will have a chance to participate in competitions, such as the Amsterdam Best Student Startup Competition, the European Best Student Startup Competition or apply for office space in the VU StartHub and join this vibrant community!

During this afternoon you will also meet the other startups, expand your network and of course have the opportunity to practice your pitch. Afterwards you will receive tips & tricks on your business idea, your pitching style and info on the possible next steps.
