Regional Events

Fish 2.0 holds two-day workshops and pitch sessions for businesses in regions with sponsored Fish 2.0 tracks. These events are active community-building sessions where participants learn from their peers’ real-world experience as well as from experts.

On the first day, participants dig into the ins and outs of financing, what investors look for, and trends affecting their market. They also learn how to talk about their business in a way that grabs interest. On the second day, participants practice their pitch and learn how to tap into the Fish 2.0 community. In the afternoon, participants stand up and pitch their business to local investors and experts.
