First Friday Pitch Day at TLA

First Friday Pitch Day at Tech Launch Arizona is your "open mic moment" for your amazing business idea.

Show up. Share your idea. Get advice. Connect.

Just come with an idea and an open mind. Whether your concept is just starting to take shape or whether you're moving along toward launch, the First Friday Pitch Day team will listen, ask helpful questions, and give you sound advice, ideas and direction.

We created First Friday Pitch Day to be an open, easy, fun format. You don't need to RSVP or make a reservation. No prepared slides or presentations are required. You don't need to prep a polished pitch.

Talk with entrepreneurial experts. Some of our region's top leaders in entrepreneurship, innovation and commercialization participate on the First Friday Pitch Day team, including experts from CoLab/Startup Tucson, Maker House, the Arizona Center for Innovation, Aztera, Spoke6 and others.

People sitting on the panel may vary from month to month, but you can be sure that whoever is there is experienced, helpful and ready to listen.

Seeing if your idea has wings couldn't be easier.

Pitches are welcomed on a walk-in, first-come first-served basis – the first Friday of every month – so join us and share your great idea!
