Facebook #pitchfestoulu Video

No mumbo-jumbo, only the essence. The pitches in our arctic extreme event will cut to the chase! This unparalleled pitching competition offers literally the coolest stage on the globe for the start-ups; a hole cut through the ice! The start-ups get to pitch as long as they can in freezing cold water while they are being filmed and broadcast via social media to the widest audiences all over the world.

Watch how the Nordic start-ups warm-up for the next Midnight Pitch Fest – the world’s most northern Rock n’ Roll flavored start-up event open for the general public! The pitches will be broadcast throughout the world.

Polar Bear Pitching ABC

  • Suitable for nearly everyone. If you suffer from high blood pressure or cardio-vascular disease, please consult with your doctor first.
  • Warm up thoroughly before going in the icy water.
  • Do not go into the water under the influence of alcohol, nor straight after the sauna (let your body cool down first).
  • You might feel like you can’t breathe. Relax, that’s only normal and harmless. It will pass.

No diving / wet suits allowed.
