How it works...

The Startups. We will give 7-10 startup founders the virtual stage for 3-minutes so they can tell the world about the problem they solve, their solution, their secret sauce, the market opportunity, their traction, and their team. There will be investors, so be prepared to answer questions!

The Investors. We are lucky to have two impressive guest judges in Kaitlyn Doyle (Director at TechNexus), Alyssa Jaffee (Vice President at 7wireVentures), and Abhinaya Konduru (Associate at M25) to give insights and feedback on each pitch. They will help founders understand what worked, what could be done better, and what it takes to land an investment from an investor like them.

Everyone Else. You play a huge role in this. You get to vote on the startup you liked the best and pick the winner.

The Winning Startup. Not only does the winner earn street cred and pride from winning Startup Grind's 2020 Summer Launch, but they will also win some great tools to help their business.
