Just in time for summer love.. we’re back for another installation of DateMyFriend.ppt, a fun, life event where locals pitch their single friends to the crowd!
Pitches are brief, entertaining powerpoint presentations in the style of a startup pitch deck. Each pitch will be followed by an audience Q&A.
Interested in pitching your friend? Apply here: bit.ly/datemyfriend
We were so thrilled by the turnout for our first event! To avoid long lines and disappointment, this event will be ticketed. We have limited capacity, so get your tickets soon!

Q. What's the event format?
A. Each person will have ~3 minutes to pitch their single friend, who will join them on stage. After the pitch, the single friend has ~2 minutes to participate in an audience Q&A. If a pitch catches your eye, ask a question!
