Be the judge! Who gets the money?

Four companies will pitch YOU, the audience, at this year’s annual PitchFest dinner! Two healthcare, two tech. You pick the winners!

Join SDVG for cocktails, dinner, and fun as the audience votes for the winning company at PitchFest 2015.

Finalists will make their pitch to the dinner audience, who will cast their votes! Bring a friend – this event is a celebration!

Last year’s winners, Portfolium and Companion Medical, each went on to raise $3M in capital in 2015!

Beer bash was a blast! We hope you made it!

 

Our 2013 annual Beer Bash social proved to be another hit!
Fun was had by all (despite the record-setting heat!) at the beautiful Scripps Forum.

We thank everyone for joining us and hope to see you again next year!
