CoMotion DubPitch – Connecting startups and investors

Written by Yan Liu / November 29, 2017

  

Thank you to all the startups and investors who participated in UW CoMotion’s second DubPitch at CoMotion headquarters on November 8. DubPitch is an exclusive opportunity for CoMotion-supported startups from inside and outside the UW community to share their story with potential investors. It helps startups gain exposure, build relationships, and offer opportunities for potential investment.

The ten startups were selected from CoMotion programs including CoMotion Labs, Amazon Catalyst, and the Innovation Fund and pitched their innovative products and services to local angel investors and venture capitalists. The startups were from a variety of disciplines including energy, pharmacy, health and IT.

Each team had ten minutes to share key information about their products, teams, strategies, and future development plans. After pitch presentations, all startups and investors joined the “Speed Dating Round” to speak with each other directly for deeper communication and further potential opportunities.

UW CoMotion kicked off the first DubPitch last spring. This event will be held once each academic quarter. See the graphic below for more information on the fascinating group of startups who participated.
