FAQ

Who can pitch at the Intercollegiate Pitch Off?

All teams pitching at IPO have been selected from fall startup accelerator programs Columbia University, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania.

My team didn't participate in one of those accelerators. Can I still pitch at IPO?

Unfortunately, we only have time to allow the startups selected from our accelerators to pitch at IPO. We would strongly encourage you to consider applying to our accelerator programs in the future!

I am interested in sponsoring the Intercollegiate Pitch Off.

We're thrilled you want to get involved with IPO! We have a variety of sponsorship tiers that fit any company size. Please contact us at demoday@columbia.edu and we'll be in touch with more information.

I would love to attend the Intercollegiate Pitch Off and watch the pitches. 

Awesome! Admission to IPO for attendees is totally free. We anticipate a large number of attendees, so we will be sending out invites to a select number of students, investors, press, and members of the startup community. Request an invite here!
