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 Jackie DiMonte from Chicago Ventures, Nishad Parmar from LOUD Capital, and Mike Asem from 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. The winning startup takes home a $2100 equity-free cash prize courtesy of the Startup Hypeman pitch fund, access to the Startup Grind Startup Membership Community, a free ticket to the Startup Grind 2022 Global Conference. We also have great prizes for the runners-up.
