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 1 editions, 195 pre-selected startups have pitched in front of more than 670 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 20m EUR of fundings have been raised so far – directly and indirectly received from investor, who participated!

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.
