The Founder Showcase is Silicon Valley’s leading international startup pitch event, helping seed-stage startups learn, launch, and connect to investors. On Wednesday, January 10, 2024, the Founder Institute will host the next global Founder Showcase, with keynote Jilliene Helman - Founder and CEO at RealtyMogul. This event will be attended by hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, media, and executives. Anyone interested is welcome to RSVP to the event for free.

As an international pre-seed startup pitch event, the Founder Showcase gives attendees an opportunity to see pitches from up-and-coming startups before anyone else. As a result, luminary companies like UdemyRelay RidesThumbtackRealty MogulKaggle, and many more gave some of their first public pitches on the Founder Showcase stage, and previous presenters have gone on to raise over $1.75 billion in funding.
