Monthly Meeting & Chain Reaction Pitch Details

Monthly Meeting

Once a month we invite 2-4 companies to our monthly meeting to give a short pitch to our investors. The purpose of this pitch is to learn more about your company and offer useful feedback. If there is sufficient interest coming out of this meeting, you will then be invited to give a more extensive pitch to our investors.

Chain Reaction Pitch

If you are invited to pitch to Chain Reaction (either following the monthly meeting or directly), you will be invited to a private pitch meeting at a mutually convenient time.


In order to respect your time and advance your company as quickly as possible, we aim to notify you of Chain Reaction's investment decision within one week of your pitch.
