2020 Pitch Competition

Each year WCS shines a spotlight on women-led startups from around the world at its annual TED-style event, WCS Talks. The 2019 pitch competition winner is eIQ Mobility for its offering of fleet electrification services. The start-up won a large prize pool to continue growing their business, including a guaranteed spot to pitch at SV Forum’s 2019 Women in Tech Festival and a pass to the Cleantech Forum in San Francisco with the option to be placed on a panel, among other prizes.

How it works

Women from six companies are selected out of all applications to pitch their innovative cleantech or sustainable-focused business idea to a panel of industry leaders during the Annual WCS Talks conference in the San Francisco Bay Area traditionally hosted by Google.

Startups have five minutes on stage, followed by time to answer questions from the judges. Winners are announced towards the end of the conference.

The application deadline is August 14th, 2020
