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.
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.
CoMotion DubPitch outcomes for UW spinoffs and CoMotion Labs companies
In FY2020, UW spinoffs and CoMotion Labs companies raised more than $1.7 billion from angel investors, VCs, and the public markets, and over half the companies who have presented at CoMotion DubPitch have had follow-on meetings with investors.
