We, the organizers of Polar Bear Pitching event, regret to inform you that due to rapidly expanding coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, we were forced to cancel this year’s Polar Bear Pitching physical event. However, we never forgot how our whole event came to be, and how this all started from the dark moment when the Nokia mobile phone business froze (read the full birth story of PBP here). This reminded us of that freezing moment and how perseverance and persistence are the key in Polar Bear Pitching. So, we decided to fight back and turn this loss into a victory. Therefore, we are now working on a virtual experimentation and we are doing all this in 7 days.

What does the Polar Bear Pitching Virtual Experimentation consist of?
  • Matchmaking and keynotes in Brella networking tool
  • Pitching live stream with Startups with an exciting and never-before-seen concept
  • Zoom press conference after the live stream
  • Discussions in social media with the hashtags #PolarBearPitching #FreezingMoment and #KissFearGoodbye
