About this Event

Orlando’s tech community has grown together through our ability to connect and help one another on our roads to success. For years, StarterStudio’s pitch nights have showcased Orlando’s up-and-coming startups and projects by providing a platform for them to share and engage with the local tech community.

Since COVID, our ecosystem has been unable to convene outside of our Zoom calls. Though we adore seeing your work-from-home setups, we decided it was time for us to socially distance – together!

In Partnership with Orlando Economic Partnership, Spectrum, and Project Orlando, Pitch Nights are returning better than ever – showcasing our wonderful tech startups in a Drive-in Pitch Night!

Holding a Drive-in experience allows us to come together from the comfort of our cars while still abiding by health and safety guidelines to keep our community safe. The show will be packed with local startups sharing their businesses & projects – but it doesn’t stop there.

In the spirit of collaboration, you can participate in each and every Q&A from your car seats by texting our moderator your questions and/or feedback LIVE.

Questions for presenters will be texted to our emcee and answered LIVE by our founders. We conclude the evening with a people’s choice poll where you select your favorite pitch! People’s Choice voting will be conducted via an SMS poll. Make sure to tweet using #DriveInOrlando and don’t forget to follow @StarterStudio @ProjectOrlando @OEP @SpectrumReach @cityoforlando

So come, grab some snacks from our vendors, and join us as we reconvene Central Florida’s Tech community!
