VentureX has one simple goal: identify and fund exciting, high-tech start-ups. It is a one day pitch competition where the winner gains funding, expert operations assistance, and access to further funding. Let’s work together to spearhead the new startup reality of “Pitch It, Launch It, Scale It.”
Who should enter:
Early stage entrepreneurs with projects or start-ups. Only have an idea? Hunker down and build it first.
We’ll be choosing the winner based on the people, product, and of course the Pitch. Bring your “A” game.
VentureX begins with an expo-style, cocktail party. The 10 lucky teams will setup booths and present their project or start-up to attendees. Open and free to the public, each attendee will be given 5 golden tickets, which they can distribute among the 10 start-ups as they wish (e.g. all 5 tickets to one, 1 ticket to 5 different teams).
The 3 teams that collect the most golden tickets will qualify for the final pitch round.
The three finalists each get 10 minutes to pitch their start-up to a panel of 5 successful entrepreneurs and investors. At the end of the evening, the panel will choose the winner. Identify and invest – simple, to the point, effective.
While only one team can win the grand prize, every team will get exposure to angel investors, venture capitalists, journalists and other entrepreneurs.
We will be announcing the next VentureX event shortly, so join our mailing list below and we can let you know when to apply!
