Pitch Madness

In a world that preaches disruption, founders have been stuck pitching their startups through the same boring format for way too long. So we set out to develop a better way for entrepreneurs to put their talents on display as visionaries and company builders. 

Our format combines the elements of a Head2Head tournament with monitored Debate, creating an environment where founders have to think on their feet!

Pitch Madness made its debut earlier this year at the Synapse Summit 2019 in Tampa, Florida - where over 100 founders applied from around the state, 8 were chosen to compete over the two-day conference and concluded with our first ever winner:

Miami-based SunVessel!

"I've been on dozens of panels and contests with entrepreneurs, but Pitch Madness at Synapse was the most innovative and creative process I have ever been involved with. The head-to-head debate-style makes the contestants think on their feet and react real-time to questions and responses from their opponent. Tyler Kelly made each contest high energy, fast-moving and very entertaining. We had the largest crowd following the action! Can't wait for next year."
