Pitchlandia is a one-day business pitch event to be held in Portland, Oregon developed and hosted by the crack-team that brought you 2012’s sold-out Startup Riot. This event will provide investment money and support to local idea-stage companies from a cross section of industries (that includes food, beverage, apparel, retail, health, and yes, tech).

Each company will have a few minutes to pitch and a few minutes for questions from the panel and audience. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the founders and idea generators at their tables in the lobby before and in between the pitch sessions. After the pitches, each attendee gets to mark a ballot with 10 or fewer choices. Ballots will be counted, and funding will be awarded, right then and there. How much funding is there to be had? That depends on the crowd and the raging success of our Crowd Supply campaign.
