About this event

Entry for the networking event is free and subject to venue capacity

Welcome to our first edition for "Pitch Your 60 sec story"

Whether you are seeking business opportunities before the deadly quiet month of August, or wish to inspire us with your story, come and join StartUp Grind Leeds at the networking event.

Open mic session (unless your voice is loud enough).

If you are a founder, entrepreneur, VC or someone just willing to network, consider joining us at 5.30 p.m. on Thursday the 18th @ The Decanter (a 3-minute walk from the main train station).

We will start with informal networking followed by 5-6 rounds of open mic pitching sessions for 60 seconds each.

To take part in the rounds of pitches, just put your name in the bucket right at the start. We will let you know whether you have been picked at every 20-minute interval.

Heads Up! This may be a highly chaotic and entertaining evening. Maybe not for the faint-hearted, but full of value and memorable moments to come.

We are looking forward to seeing you
