Flew all the way from India for Bitcoin 2022 pitch day. It was well organized and there were some fantastic pitches out there. We got great investor connections and strategic partnerships with other companies.

It was a privilege to participate in Pitch Day at Bitcoin 2022. The opportunity offers exposure to high-profile investors and was the catalyst for discussions with many other venture capitalists. The production team was very professional and it was a lot fun speaking on stage. If you are a founder ready to raise capital, I encourage you to apply as it was an amazing experience for our whole team.

It was fun! Several people have mentioned that they first learned about Stacker News from Pitch Day, including investors. Getting to present at Bitcoin 2022 really helped me feel like Stacker News had landed.

As a pleb, I didn't have industry connections, but participating in Pitch Day was the perfect way to meet and bond with investors and innovators who care as much about bitcoin & the lightning network as I do. Pitching and even public speaking in general is so far out of my comfort zone, but everyone was incredibly kind and supportive. I'm so glad I got to share the deeply personal journey that led to Pouch becoming the first lightning wallet for the Philippines. Thanks so much to the Bitcoin Magazine team for the opportunity!
— Ethan Rose, Pouch
The Lightning pitch session was electric. The companies are building innovative products to solve real world problems. It was both a treat and challenge to judge because the participants set and met such a high bar.

The startups at the pitch day competition were impressive and focused on some innovative use cases. Overall, the experience of judging with the other judges and interacting with the startups was very fruitful.
