Once per quarter, Galvanize campuses across the country host a local entrepreneur pitch competition where startup founders pitch their company to a judging panel featuring some of the city's top entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and industry executives. Pitchers & Pitches is a relaxed and fun environment where founders get great pitch practice and feedback, and the audience gets some free drinks while socializing with the city's startup and technology community.
In a mini-demo day scenario, startup founders will be given 3 minutes to pitch and 2 minutes for Q&A on their concept and business model, both from the judges and the audience. The panel of judges will provide feedback and a score based on a standardized rubric.
Winner (3) free months of membership at Galvanize for up to (3) team members.*
2nd Place Fundraising feedback session with a local Venture Capitalist
3rd Place Mentor session with a local Galvanize mentor
*If the winning team is an existing member of Galvanize, they will receive the same monetary reward as credit to their Galvanize account.
