Hosted by FreshTracks Capital, Peak Pitch Vermont, now in its 14th year, is a skiing, networking and fundraising event held at Sugarbush Mountain.

IF YOU GO:
You are responsible for your ski or boarding equipment; you may either bring your own or rent equipment at the main lodge before returning down the mountain to ski at the Timberline area. Thanks to our sponsors, we'll provide you with a free lift ticket as well as a hearty breakfast and lunch.
At the beginning of the day, each investor/advisor will be given mock “checks”. If an investor likes your pitch, they will give you one or more of their checks. You'll have multiple opportunities to ride the lift and pitch to many investor-advisors. When everyone returns to the Mountain View Room in the Gatehouse Lodge for lunch, we'll tally the entrepreneurs’ checks and select 3 or 4 top "check" recipients who will then have the opportunity to pitch their business idea to the audience. The lift ride is about 6 minutes long, and we ask that you keep your pitch to a maximum of 4 minutes to allow time for any questions and constructive feedback from investors. You'll get several rides and pitches in throughout the morning.
