Fueling the Growth Pitch Competition
The Refinery hosted Fueling the Growth Pitch Competition at the Boston WeWork, in support of the City of Boston's Women Entrepreneurs Boston (WE BOS) Week. WE BOS week convenes Boston's entrepreneurial ecosystem for a full week of educational programming, mentoring opportunities, and networking events designed to support women entrepreneurs.
The Refinery teamed with angel and venture capital investors to get as many female founders, as possible, in one-on-one meetings with investors. Founders pitched for 7 minutes, and received 7 minutes of feedback. Investors selected the top companies to pitch-off for cash and other prizes at the evening awards/networking event. Highlights from last year's event can be found here.
In Boston, investors from Flybridge Capital, GE Ventures, Battery Ventures, General Catalyst Partners, Goldenseeds, Pipeline Angels, and LaunchPad met with founders. Meet our investors below.
1st Place - $15,000
- 2nd place - $5,000
- 3rd place - Fellowship at The Capital Network, and 1 month free of WeWork Hot Desk membership at the Mass Ave location in Cambridge ($350 value)
