The Pitch with Tyro.VC

Present your start-up for a chance to be featured on Tyro.VC and up to SGD1 million in investment


- If you are a start-up, do indicate your attendance via Peatix AND submit your business model overview and time slot via: http://goo.gl/forms/0gI5zpaBcd

- The overall session runs from 12pm to 6pm and you may still attend without a confirmed slot. However, as we will only be able to accommodate 1 start-up in the pitch room at any given time, do note that those who have confirmed their time slots will be given preference.

- This means, they won't have to wait till a time slot opens up in the holding room.

- It would also be to your advantage to submit your business model overview in advance so that the Tyro contestants will be able to review this and deep-dive into more critical aspects of your business during the limited amount of time given.


Protocol on Thursday:

- On the day of the session, each start-up will be invited in individually. Hence, please wait in the holding area outside the IDA Lab and a member of the team will bring you in when the last start-up has exited the room.

- Do note that there may be filming of the session as part of the Tyro.VC programme as well as media and investors in the audience. Do flag during the session if there are any portions of the discussion that may be of a confidential nature.

- Only registered media and investors will be allowed in the pitch room as observers.


The Pitch aims to help promising start-ups connect with some of the most well-known VCs in Singapore, Infocomm Investments, Red Dot Ventures, Golden Gate Ventures, Gree Venture and Clickstream Ventures.

This event is a chance for start-ups to present their businesses to the contestants of Tyro.VC. Each startup will receive 10-15 mins to present their business model and product.

The best start-ups will work closely with the contestants of Tyro.VC for a chance to be featured on Tyro.VC and to pitch to the VCs above with the chance of walking away with up to SGD1 million in investment.
