No April Fools: Founder Showcase Contestants have now Raised over $130 Million

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-04-01

The Founder Showcase, now in it's 15th edition, is a 100% free pitch competition completely geared towards seed-stage companies. While most other similar events feature companies raising their Series-A, we go one step earlier, as our presenters are all less than two years old and have raised less than $250,000 in funding. As a result, we pride ourselves in showcasing early-stage companies before anybody else (pun intended).

After 13th Founder Showcase Champion Realty Mogul announced a $9 million round last week, we decided to update the tally of funds our alumni have raised.

We are proud to announce that previous Founder Showcase Contestants have now raised over $130 million.

We are equally proud that none of these contestants have been required to pay a dime, as the Founder Showcase is a completely free pitch competition.

Past contestants include companies like Udemy, Relay Rides, Thumbtack, Kaggle, and many more. See our Founder Showcase Hall of Fame here
