Startups Rhine-Main

What is the Pitch Club?

Pitch Club has been initiated with the idea to develop Frankfurt Rhine-Main’s startup ecosystem from a highly fragmented one to a solid and strong ecosystem for startups. Meanwhile, Pitch Club is the most successful pitch event in the region with impressive metrics, underlining this fact: In 20 editions, 204 preselected startups have pitched in front of more than 720 investors. From the beginning Pitch Club has been focussing on the major bottleneck of founders: money raising. More than 40 % of participating startups have received a funding, after they had presented at Pitch Club. In total more than 30m EUR of fundings have been raised so far – directly and indirectly received from investors who participated!

But founders often need the necessary expertise and experience in addition to capital. The Pitch Club Company Builder supports founders in IT, Sales, Marketing and HR. Furthermore, Pitch Club offers various services for startups and corporates – from startup coaching through different pitch workshops to exciting innovation concepts for corporates.

But that’s not all: With strong partnerships like the Tech Quartier, Goethe Unibator, Business Angels network and initiatives like Startup Grind, we bring Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region more and more on the national and international startup landscape. Even though, we have moved forward in the previous years – and Frankfurt Rhine-Main’s ecosystem has substantially grown and is able to compete in some aspects with other ecosystems like Berlin, Munich and Hamburg – there is still a lot to do. We are looking foward that you are / you will be part of the ecosystem and bring it to the next level!

So this is like a job interview – but reversed! Companies pitch themselves, the HR concepts, jobs and projects they offer to the audience, i.e. the Software Developers and IT-Professionals, who ask tough and hair-raising questions in addition. After the pitches you can get more information in 1-on-1 talks with the companies. At 8 p.m. the event shifts over to the afterwork party: All participants are invited to snacks, drinks and maybe you get to know your future employer.

The participation as well as catering (including snacks, soft drinks, beverages & long drinks) are for free! If you want to participate as a Software Developer or IT Professional at the invite-only event, please apply via our Pitch Club Developer Edition page. To join the afterwork party at 8 p.m., just register via the afterwork registration form.
