Polar Bear Pitching 2020

Polar Bear Pitching is your chance to get the world talking about you. This unparalleled pitching competition challenges you to pitch while standing in an ice hole carved in the frozen Baltic Sea.

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.

Why would any sane person come up with an idea of having a pitching event during the winter in a Nordic country, outside, in an ice hole?

Refresh your business, body and mind. Join after swim activities, world-class workshops and inspiring talks.

Polar Bear Pitching is famous for its ice hole pitching competition but it’s actually more than meets the ice. It offers an inspiring conference program that will refresh your business, body and mind. Join world-class workshops, inspiring talks and after swim activities.

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