Join Pitch Club

Aimed at seed and series A start-ups.

The Pitch Club competition is held virtually, and the most impressive start-ups will qualify for free membership to Circklo’s exclusive Game Changers Community (their admission to the community will also be completely free of charge). Circklo’s Game Changers community comprises multinational executives, investors, private equity fund managers, experts in sustainability and circular economy as well as academics and various start-up founders from across the globe.

The Details

Pitch Club runs in a virtual setting and is absolutely free of charge. It takes place behind closed doors - in a safe space, attended only by the panel and Circklo’s core team. Sessions last no longer than 60 minutes with just three start-ups in each one - you have 10 minutes to pitch.

Bring your pitch deck or demo (if you have one) bring your co-founders (if you have any) – but, more importantly, bring a Game Changer’s attitude!


The Benefits

You will be provided with a full report based on your performance  during the pitch, including;

- Areas of strength and for improvement

- Competitive analysis / benchmark 

- Bespoke fundraising profile  

The start-ups who impress will qualify for membership to Circklo’s exclusive Game Changers Community (also at no cost) which includes multinational executives, investors, private equity fund managers, experts in sustainability and circular economy as well as academics and start-up founders from across the globe.
