Polar Bear Pitching

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 to Wednesday, March 13, 2019

What is the scariest stage you have ever been on? Polar Bear Pitching offers an easy answer to that. It's the only event in the world in which the lenght of pitches is only restricted by how much cold the speaker can withstand and in which frogmen are in charge of the security.

Polar Bear Pitching has grown to be an internationally acclaimed startup event. We've had competitors from almost all continents and the competition is streamed to dozens of countries. Basic idea of the competition is that startup entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to judges, investors and audience while standing waist deep in an ice hole carved in frozen Baltic sea. At the same time it's a competition and a marvellous way to get funding and visibility to your business. Jumping to a frozen sea is a very concrete way of demostrating just how serious you are with your business.

In addition to the adrenaline-bumping finals, Polar Bear Pitching offers a conference with world class workshops and the most inspiring keynotes not to mention all the side events and evening parties for expanding your network. Next Polar Bear Pitcing will be held on March 12th and 13th 2019. Read more from the official website of Polar Bear Pitching.

This years event is organized by Mira Koski, Mia Kemppaala, Sara Jokiniemi and Anu Rytivaara. You can contact them by sending e-mail with the following form of address: firstname.surname@oulu.fi
