Pitch night

Peak Startup Pitch Night is one of our most popular community events where founders, aspiring entrepreneurs, and curious community members can come together and celebrate the innovative ideas being developed in our own backyard.

Think you are ready to pitch?

Think you are ready to pitch? Peak Startup Pitch Night program is a cohort-based model accepting 3-5 companies per event. This is a chance for founders to gain visibility in the community, build and refine their pitches with coaching from our team of mentors, and get feedback from a live audience. 

Calling all startup champions!

Join us at our upcoming Pitch Night to hear from innovative business founders and offer your thoughtful feedback to presenters. All are welcome to attend this community-favorite event. 

Call for COS Startup Week Pitch Night Competitors! 

Once a year, as part of Colorado Springs Startup Week the best of the year are chosen to compete for the fame and glory of becoming the year’s Pitch Champions with a cash prize from our event sponsor, Colorado Lending Source! The event is one of the week’s keynote session and will conclude the week’s festivities and educational programming–in other words, it is going to be a party! 


We are calling startups to apply to present. This year we are looking for the best our region has to offer, so bring your A game. There are 3 openings in this year’s competition for startup companies at any stage.  We only ask that startup businesses identify as a high-growth venture, not a small business. Please see the chart below for details.  



To apply, first, make sure that you are available to participate in person on September 12th from 5-7, and then submit a video with your slides of your 5-minute pitch by August 1. Please send video links to startupweekcos@peakstartup.org. We are looking for well-developed pitches, so for the competition, we will not be offering pitch coaching, if that is of interest to you please apply to our Community Pitch Night program.
