Polar Bear Pitching 2019

Polar Bear Pitching helps you crystallize your message. The stage could not be any cooler, and we mean literally: a hole cut through the ice in the frozen Baltic Sea.

Tune in to follow the Polar Bear Pitching 2019 Finals:

This is why you should pitch your idea while standing waist deep in a freezing water.

  • Media attention

Pitching from the inside of an ice hole will not only make great marketing material, no! The better your pitch the more media will get interested in you.

Through the international livestream hubs and the global marketing efforts, Polar Bear Pitching reaches a huge community, to which you will get exposed when pitching from the ice hole.

For benchmarking check out CityFalcon, which raised the bigger part of its 0.5m Pounds funding with the clip from Polar Bear Pitching 2017. Or see FlowMotion which outperformed its funding target with jumping into the ice hole and the video material they got from the event.

  • Get funded

Every year the event attracts more international VC’s and investors, which closely watch the startups and have face-to-face meetings afterwards. They like the uniqueness and the warm spirit of the event.
