Pitch Globally: Sharktank Style Pitch Event

Presented by Pitch Globally and the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation 

6:30 PM in the Sharon Disney Lund Dance Theater
Pitch Globally Media, in addition to connecting startup founders with investors by means of pitch events, aims to be the platform that enables startup founders and entrepreneurs the world over to go from startup idea to successful launch and beyond. Where there are no startup resources available in a specific geo-location, we aim to help create a startup ecosystem that will flourish. Where there are pockets of micro-ecosystems already in existence, we support those startup ecosystems, while being mindful and respectful of the need to maintain the unique flavor of the area.
