Apply to Pitch

This competition is for pre-seed/seed stage startups that have raised between $200k to $2M. If that's you, we're excited to meet you!



We will choose the top 32 startups to compete in our March Madness Startup competition. These startups will do a live online pitch in front of a panel of VCs and an audience of potential investors, customers, and fans.



Our panel of VCs will vote for four startups to move to the final stage (aka: "The Final Four"). The audience will have the opportunity to vote in two additional startups to the final round.



The final event will involve live broadcast pitches where the VC panel will dive into each company. The winner will receive a minimum of a $100,000 investment plus additional rewards and prizes!*
