UberPITCH – challenge information

UberPITCH gives users of the Uber app in Copenhagen the opportunity to submit an application form to discuss a business “Pitch” to a venture capitalist for the Copenhagen.  UberPITCH is aimed at encouraging entrepreneurs in participating cities in Europe (as determined at Uber’s sole discretion) to find out more about how to potentially accelerate the growth of their Pitch by speaking with venture capitalists who are active in their country and/or market.  Selected finalists chosen from eligible participants (being those participants who have successfully requested to discuss their Pitch using the Uber app with an appointed venture capitalist and signed any release and documentation associated with UberPITCH and strictly complied with these Terms) will then be given the opportunity to travel to Berlin to discuss their Pitch at the 2016 UberPITCH Conference with Uber Technology, Inc. CEO Travis Kalinick!*  Airfares to Berlin will be borne by Uber or Uber’s partners, and participants must agree to consent to share the necessary personal information in order to make any arrangements for such travel.  Any other associated cost will be borne by participants, including but not limited to transfers, meals and accommodation.  Finalist places are strictly limited and will be selected on a pan-European basis, only.  Some cities or countries partaking in UberPITCH may have no participants that progress to the finalist stage at the 2016 UberPITCH Conference.

Application forms successfully submitted (applications are accepted by online only) will be sent a special “Code” by return email. Users are responsible for having a valid and current email address.  The Code will enable users to unlock a special vehicle view on the relevant date in that city (see “How to participate in UberPITCH – below) that will allow them to request the opportunity to discuss their Pitch with the venture capitalist participating in the relevant Uber location.

*In the event that Travis Kalanick is unable to attend the 2016 UberPITCH Conference in Berlin, participants agree to partake in and discuss their Pitch with another Uber executive or employee, to be selected at Uber’s discretion.
