Along with Uber, we’re giving away more than $200,000 to entrepreneurs and ideas-women who are ready to take their passion projects to the next level. Turn your idea into action. Make your business bigger and better. Welcome to UberPitch.
At Girlboss, we've always been a champion of women who go after the opportunities they believe in, despite any barriers that stand in their way. That's why we came together with Uber to launch Uber Pitch, a program awarding more than $200,000 in prize money to three rising-star entrepreneurs. The goal: Empower startups (or big ideas with big potential) by giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to enter to win financial support, mentorship, and the resources they need to level up.
The competition is officially closed, but scroll down to see our crowned winners and more resources on how to pitch your business. Then, join the conversation by sharing your entrepreneurship story or learnings and tag #RethinkTheRatio. When we can come together and share our biggest failures, more women will gain the confidence they need to get after it.
Our advisory board of judges—comprised of five inspired and accomplished female entrepreneurs—will hear pitches from the top finalists at the Girlboss Rally and deliberate to select the winners. The advisors will also serve as mentors to the winners in the months following the competition.
Need help brushing up on your pitching skills? Check out some of our handy resources below, like advice from a venture capitalist on what she looks for in a pitch, and tips for building confidence before giving a speech.
In this six-episode podcast, you’ll learn from pitching pro Jen Rubio of AWAY—who’s been through the venture capitalist gauntlet—as she shares her experiences to better arm you for your own business endeavors. Whether that means seeking angel investors for your genius startup idea or negotiating for the salary you want, this podcast is a can’t-miss resource for your business finesse and bottom line.
