UberPITCH in Hawaii

September 7, 2016 / Honolulu

Do you have a great business idea to present to an industry expert, but don’t know how? Here’s your moment. Submit your idea and request UberPITCH for the chance to present to a top local investor.

Every day Uber helps connect thousands of people to a reliable ride across Oahu and Maui. But that’s not all our technology can do. This month, we’re connecting riders with local industry experts from Sultan Ventures to create a unique mentorship opportunity at the tap of a button.


Have Hawaii’s next big idea? Request UberPITCH and pitch an investor while you ride.


Here’s how it works:

  • Honolulu participants can submit their application here.
  • Maui participants can submit their application here.
  • If your idea is selected, you’ll receive a promo code to unlock the UberPITCH option in your app.
  • Request UberPITCH on Tuesday, September 13 between noon and 4pm for the chance to pitch your idea to an investor.
  • If you don’t secure a pitch on your first attempt, keep trying! Demand will be high. UberPITCH cars are available on a limited, first come, first served basis. Supply is extremely limited and not all requests may be fulfilled.
  • All UberPITCH rides are FREE and will start and end at your pickup location.
  • The top 3 ideas (as determined by Sultan Ventures) will earn mentorship sessions with Sultan Ventures.
    • 1st Place: 4 1-hour mentoring sessions.
    • 2nd Place: 2 1-hour mentoring sessions.
    • 3rd Place: 1 1-hour mentoring session.
  • Deadline to submit your idea is 11:59PM on Sunday, September 11
  • Your UberPITCH idea cannot relate to on-demand transportation, mobility or logistics services.
