About this Event
We have hit a milestone with our Pitch Events! On December 10, we will be celebrating our 100th Pitch Event with a Global Volition Pitch Alumni Showcase
This event will highlight startups in our community from across North America and Europe from various industries and stages, some that we have recently met, and a few that go way back.
At Volition, we support entrepreneurs from across Canada and beyond by providing space for conversations, connections, and practical skill-building--and that's what our pitch events are all about!
VIRTUAL EVENT LINK: Zoom webinar, sent via Eventbrite following registration.
PLEASE NOTE: 'Doors' close after 30mins (a recording will be made available for all registered attendees)
Who's are your hosts?
- Melanie Ewan: Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Volition
- Paul Brassard: Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Volition
WHAT TO EXPECT
Eleven entrepreneurs from across North America and Europe will take the virtual 'stage' to present their 3-minute startup pitch.
While there will be no feedback this time around, the audience will have the opportunity to offer their support as well as engage with pitchers via polls, Q&A and Live Chat + vote on a fan favourite!
We will be inviting our global community of founders, investors, and ecosystem partners to the event, and encourage family, friends, and teammates to join in!
For our part, we commit to creating a comfortable and engaging space for the startup community to gather.

Words from past attendees:
"Thanks for hosting a really great event today in Amsterdam! I've attended many many pitch events and I thought today's was in its own class as far as comfortable environment and constructive feedback for the pitchers." - Kelly Adam
“I really enjoyed the event and found it incredibly useful. I was actually pitching for my non profit again [the next weekend] and won an award which includes a cash prize for the organisation, and I think the feedback I got from the Volition event was really instrumental in helping me improve my pitch for that. So thank you!!” - Women’s Pitch Night Amsterdam runner-up
"I‘m really thankful to have had the opportunity to pitch at Volition Pitch Nights because that really changed the course of my pitching career. I never thought I would be so comfortable pitching. I definitely recommend the pitch nights to every entrepreneur!" - Andrei Matei, Founfer of Robbox
