Each year, WCS hosts a startup pitch competition focused on spotlighting companies lead by women, either as CEOs or in the C-suite. This year the competition will be a stand alone event as a part of the WCS Talks Virtual Series on January 21st.
Last Year’s Winner
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. Startups have five minutes on stage, followed by time to answer questions from the judges. Winners are announced towards the end of the conference.
Applications will open August 21, 2020.
