What is the Pitch and Pair event?

The Pitch and Pair event brings together 10 of the most promising women-led companies with more than150 highly vetted senior experts from within The Big Push community for one evening of ‘match making’.

This is a participatory event. The founders will be pitching their companies to the room. At the end of the event, you will be asked to nominate which founder you would like to offer your expertise to. You will be able to select more than one if you so choose.

Offering expertise as a Big Push expert means you have:

  • Hands-on domain expertise
  • Ability to design and execute a customized growth plan
  • Flexibility and bandwidth to work on projects. Up to 15 hours/month when needed.
  • Regular communication with founder and The Big Push on the execution and updates of growth plan during the 3 month engagement

There is no commitment to nominate a founder that evening if you don’t find someone you feel meshes with the expertise you can offer.

Once we have collected and consolidated the requests, we will be in touch to let you know if your match was successful.
