The 2021 Rotorua Pitch Night will introduce investment-ready businesses to prospective investors and be the start of an active local investor community in Rotorua.

The Pitches
We will have up to four businesses pitching. They will have 15 minutes to share crucial information about their business, what funds they need and why interested parties should invest. Businesses can be asking for equity investment, lending investment or a combination of both.

Each pitch will be followed by question time. There will be an Expert Panel to provide their thoughts on the pitch and ask any questions. If time allows, audience members can also ask questions.

Businesses must apply to pitch. Businesses pitching will attend a Firestation group pitch training workshop and have the option of individual pitch coaching. If we are overwhelmed by Pitch applications there will be a Quick Fire Pitch round in front of a live audience on Wednesday 7th July.

Accepted Pitches will pay a $199+gst fee to confirm their place. This fee will be refunded after they pitch.

The Investors
Our Investor audience are people in the local community and wider central north island region who are interested and able to support up and coming businesses.

Pitch night acts as an introduction. Firestation can help organise individual pitch businesses to meet with investors/lenders before or after the event as required.

Audience attendance is by invitation only and is limited to genuine individual and corporate investors, pitch team supporters and event partner sponsors and members.

People interested in attending must register their interest to attend and if accepted will receive an invitation and event venue details.
