Orlando entrepreneurs, time to start practicing your pitch — a Shark Tank-on-the-go is coming to the City Beautiful, and it could be the best opportunity to land a deal.
UberPitch feature will be in Orlando on Nov. 13 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. UberPitch allows entrepreneurs to order an Uber ride via smartphone for a chance to pitch their business to local investors.
Uber cars throughout Orlando may arrive with an investor willing to listen to your business plan.
Florida Funders, a Tampa-based organization that has a network of angel investors and acts as a liaison between investors and early-stage companies, partnered with Uber to host the feature. UberPitch took place in Tampa in mid-October where dozens of startups ordered an Uber ride and delivered their business plan. Uber and Florida Funders suggest that each pitch should be no longer than 15 minutes.
Catalyst co-working space in downtown Orlando also is partnering with Uber and Florida Funder to provide free co-working space for participating entrepreneurs and investors.
Interested riders can enter the promo code OrlandoPitch in the Uber app to unlock the opportunity. Florida Funders advised that entrepreneurs should keep checking the app for the opportunity since demand will be high.
