Want to Pitch Adeo Ressi Onstage at the Founder Showcase? Learn how here.
As you may or may not know, the Founder Showcase Pitch Competition is completely free. However, for many different reasons, it is not the right opportunity for some companies. For example, they may not meet the criteria (less than two years old and and less than $250,000 in funding), are not ready (no product to show), or simply do not apply on time (the application deadline has passed).
For these reasons, we've created the opportunity for even more companies to get the chance to pitch onstage in front of hundreds of investors and press.
At the 13th Founder Showcase on Wednesday, March 27th in Mountain View, three additional companies will get pitch onstage during a special "Office Hours" session with the Founder Institute's Founder & CEO, Adeo Ressi. The three companies will be chosen via the Demo Table and CrowdPitch Competitions.
Demo Table Competiton
The two best Demo Table Companies, as voted by the audience at the event, will get to participate in the onstage Office Hours. There are only a few tables left, so register today.
Anyone who purchases a Founder/CEO ticket also has chance to get onstage through the CrowdPitch Competition. Simply purchase a Founder/CEO ticket, and on Friday, March 22nd we'll contact you with instructions on how to submit a one-sentence pitch for your company. Then, through a combination of audience voting and our judging, we'll select the best pitch to participate onstage at the event.
No other event gives attendees access to so much.
