I know it’s only the first half of August, but the wall of events in September is already staring me in the face.

The week of September 14th is what is making me call it “Pitch-tember” – a ton of opportunities to pitch your company.

Thursday looks empty, but I’ve heard that Ventures West is having their annual (private) mixer that evening – so the whole week is full!

To prep for all this pitching, we’ve asked Patrick Lor to fly in from Calgary, to spend some time giving feedback. We’ll be giving preference to the companies accepted to the Sept. 14th Bootcamp – sign up for the event on Upcoming for more information.

September is busy elsewhere as well – TechCrunch 50 is on the 14th and 15th in San Francisco, and the week after is DEMO in San Diego. I know of at least a couple of Canadian companies going down for TechCrunch.

So, even though it’s “only” halfway through August, I already feel the pressure building to work with companies to tune and prep their story. Especially after seeing the Techstars Demo Day, where the teams spend a gruelling 3 weeks straight getting ready for their pitch.

    Hello there. I sincerely want to declare that what you post here is really good post so I m thinking to post on my Facebook profile so everybody can have the possibility to enjoy. I was glad when I saw this tittle, Pitch-tember | Bootup Labs Blog, on my google search, and the reason is that finally I found what I was looking for. All the best
