CoMotion DubPitch

Program description

Connecting investors to innovations

CoMotion holds a twice-yearly event, CoMotion DubPitch, which brings together startups and early-stage innovations from the University of Washington with investors and venture capitalists. These companies and projects are in various stages of development, with investment opportunities ranging from pre-seed to Series A.

How it works

Teams from multiple sectors, including cleantech, engineering, medical/life sciences, and software, give 10-minute pitches followed by audience Q&A and time for networking.

Program outcomes

Transforming ideas into economic and societal impact

CoMotion DubPitch provides a critical platform to connect companies seeking talent and capital with mentors and investors, but it also helps build connections and relationships between executives, company leaders, and domain experts.
