CoMotion DubPitch is a twice-yearly event which brings together startups and early-stage innovations from the UW with investors and venture capitalists. Leaders from the companies and projects deliver ten-minute pitches, offering investment opportunities ranging from pre-seed to Series A. CoMotion mentors provide support in advance of the event by offering guidance and recommendations to the teams as they hone their presentations.
Seven teams gathered in person for the Spring ‘22 CoMotion DubPitch event to pitch their companies to an audience of investors and venture capitalists. All the teams are based on UW research or are from CoMotion Labs, our multi-industry incubator. The event featured startups from a broad range of sectors including life sciences, medical devices, IT and software, hardware, and cleantech.
