“The Market” Stock Pitching Game

“The Market” is a community organized stock pitching game held live over Zoom every month. The goal of the game is to empower and inspire investors to do their own research. We believe that investing can be fun and rewarding— especially when surrounded by other smart, curious people!

The game is set up in a bracket-style competition with each competitor getting three minutes to give an investment pitch before answering to “The Market” (aka the audience) about questions and concerns for their company. After each round the audience votes on the pitch that was the most convincing investment on a 3-5 year time horizon.

The game has been held every month since December 2020, and in recent games we’ve been able to offer a $100 prize to the winning pitch of the night. All pitches are uploaded and can be viewed on Youtube.

The most recent game was held Saturday Dec. 11th, with Tyler Okland emerging victorious with his pitch of Opendoor. A special surprise and treat of the night was Simon Erickson of 7investing attended and gave notes on all of the pitches! (He also generously donated a free 7investing coffee mug to everyone in attendance!)

Here’s a teaser for each of the six pitches from our game in December 2021. Be on the lookout for each of the full pitches with Q&A to be uploaded to Youtube in the coming days.
