The DCWEEK Pitch Jam!

[Gold or VIP Badge Required to Attend. Get one here.]

A rapid-fire showcase of DC's hottest startups competing up on stage with only one focus: nailing the perfect 60-second pitch.  

Like the NBA Slam Dunk Competition, judges will hold up signs ranging from 1-10 after each pitch, and the audience will have a chance to weigh in on the action.  18 startups will compete for a few special prizes.

Here are some of the companies you'll see:



1st Place = 2x Embassy Suites Hotel Room Nights + Cool Trophy + 3 mo. Intelligent Office Membership + Zappos Gift Card + Otterbox Case

2nd Place = 1x Embassy Suites Hotel Room Night + Less Cool Trophy +  Zappos Gift Card + 1 mo. Intelligent Office Membership + Otterbox Case

3rd Place = 1x Embassy Suites Hotel Room Night + Still Kinda Cool Trophy + Zappos Gift Card + 1 mo. Intelligent Office Membership + Otterbox Case

Everyone Else = Otterbox Gear + Love From The Crowd!
