In early June, CoMotion held its fourth DubPitch event where research teams from the University of Washington pitch their innovations to local investors. As the UW’s collaborative innovation hub, CoMotion acts as a conduit between UW researchers/CoMotion Labs’ startups/CoMotion Innovation Fund winners and investors looking for investment opportunities. DubPitch supports CoMotion’s mission of expanding the economic and societal impact of the UW community.
Ten teams, with expertise in Health IT, Blockchain and IT were invited to pitch their technologies in ten minutes, followed by a networking happy hour where investors could ask questions, exchange business cards, and learn more about funding opportunities. All teams were based on UW research or were from CoMotion Labs, our multi-industry labs system which hosts startups inside and outside the UW community.
