In Vancouver today, April 7, Uber is packing Canadian Venture Capital guys into cars and sending them out to hear pitches from individuals.

For you, if you’re in the city between 11am and 3pm, that means if you download the Uber app and book a ride with UBERpitch (and there’s a VCer available), a car will show up and drive you both around for 15 minutes while you pitch.

Former Vancouver mayor hopeful Peter Ladner has been on Twitter calling it a promo scam, presumably to promo Uber, which is still banned in town. Which it kind of is.

But so what? Grab a ride and pitch Ryan Holmes or Boris Wertz or Mike Satterfield. What have you got to lose?
