iPitch 2020 received 1200+ applications
iPitch is Villgro’s annual deal discovery platform that gets social entrepreneurs, incubators and impact investors to discover each other.
iPitch 2020 has been redesigned in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, we need to support as many impact creating solutions as possible. Keeping this in mind, applications are open to a wider set of sectors and stages. We will also be supporting shortlisted applicants in doing their best at the Virtual Pitches.
iPitch 2020 is open to a range of for-profit social enterprises:
MVP / Prototype ready / Launched in market
Does your enterprise have the potential to create substantial social impact, but doesn’t fall under any of these categories?
Do apply; some of our Funding Partners are sector agnostic. If you’re the right fit, we will get in touch.
1 Sep to 30 Sep
1 Oct to 20 Oct
20 Oct to 1 Nov
1 Nov to 15 Nov
Post 15 Nov
Each iPitch 2020 Coalition Partner has their own incubation/investment thesis as well as funding instrument/s. Your enterprise could be of interest to any or even all the partners. The negotiation and decision on incubation or funding support is entirely at the discretion of the respective coalition partners and their applicants of interest.
Due to the large number of applications and multiple partners, do allow us time to get back to you. If you are shortlisted, the next step will be to pitch to investors virtually, for which we will inform you by 20 October. If you have not received an update from us by then, please assume you have not been selected.
If you are selected, we request you to keep your schedules flexible between 1 to 15 November to accommodate the Virtual Pitching sessions. Post virtual pitches, interested partners will contact you directly, so please double-check the contact information you provide in your application!
