PitchUp Three Finals Winners Selected

Showcasing 21 outstanding startups, the BoomStartup’s PitchUp Three Finals was an exciting and successful event. Designed to intensify awareness of new business startups and contribute cash and services to their cause, the PitchUp business pitch competition gave a public forum for the finalists to showcase their vision and progress on developing a sustainable business to achieve their ambitious goals.

The global, open pitch competition encourages and highlights early-stage startup whose ideas have earned under $250K in the past 12-months. 

This open program attracted 240 entries from startups located in 41 countries. Of which, our preliminary judging committee and program selected 21 finalists. On April 15, 2022 these finalists provided a three-minute pitch followed by a 2-minute Q&A session where 12 judges selected the category winners.
