Campus Founders Pitch Event
January 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for the first-ever Campus Founders Pitch Event! This event is an opportunity for student-founded startups to compete in front of a live audience for a $5,000 cash investment from Campus Founders Fund, a student-run venture capital fund powered by Kickstart Seed Fund.
In addition to the $5,000 cash investment, the winning startup will also receive a suite of additional business services worth more than $10,000, including packages for legal assistance (startup attorney Stephen Walter), SEO (97th Floor), videography (Awsh Studios), marketing consulting (Saxton Horne Communications), and photography (Off the Frame Photography).
This event will be held at the Silicon Slopes office in Lehi. All Utah undergraduate and post-graduate students are invited to attend the event as spectators or participants. In addition to the prize package awarded to the winning startup, snacks and tons of free tickets for the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit (January 18-19, tickets courtesy of Silicon Slopes) will be provided for those in attendance.
If you’d like to apply to pitch your startup in the competition, submit your information at campusfounders.com/cf-hub-application. If you’ve already pitched to Campus Founders Fund in the past, you can still apply to pitch in this competition. If you’re wondering whether you are qualified to pitch, visit our FAQ page at campusfounders.com or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The short and sweet? A student must have a meaningful equity position in the startup to be eligible.
In addition to our pitch competition, we’ll be introducing another surprise we’ve been working on that will help student founders raise venture funding and navigate the VC world!
Campus Founders Fund has invested in 18 student-run companies since 2014, including SimpleCitizen, Whistic, Bookroo, Daplie, and Trace. Come see which startup we invest in next!
