Early-stage startups
have an unfair advantage
during uncertain times.

Be the first to know of our upcoming
pitch+learn events. More than pitches;
wisdom from the trenches.

Apply to pitch!

Are you a founder of an early-stage, software-focused* startup and have not yet raised a $1M+ seed investment round? We invite you to pitch to get some feedback from our friendly judging panels, visibility to our growing audience of investors, and, for the winners, $10,000 in AWS cloud services credits + a selection of sponsor-provided promotions (varies each time) + mentorship by the Badhouse team in the subsequent months.

☞ Go fill out this application form to be considered.

You can be based anywhere, but keep in mind that our events will typically be scheduled to start around 4pm PT (Vancouver time).

* So that there's no misunderstanding, we also mean startups using AI techniques or blockchain stacks. We're open to hearing about all software-driven startups, working at the application layer, or down in the plumbing at the protocol layer.

Upcoming event

Our next Pitch+Learn event is scheduled for Thursday, May 27th @ 4:00pm PDT.
This will be a special Vancouver Startup Week edition, with a focus on local early-stage startups.

Unlike our past events, registration to attend this time is being handled by Vancouver Startup Week, a non-profit organization with a mission to cultivate and amplify the local tech ecosystem. Our event is free, but there is a ticket cost which gives access to all the week's online events (May 21-28). Get one here: vanstartupweek.ca. After joining the Vancouver Startup Week platform (Whova), remember to add Badhouse Pitch+Learn to your "Agenda" so that you get access to the live stream on May 27th.
