WHAT IS LAUNCHSPOT RAPID PITCH?
The LaunchSpot Rapid Pitch event (a part of the Tempe Geeks Night Out), organized in partnership with ASU Venture Catalyst, the City of Tempe, Tallwave and the Phoenix Business Journal will give 6 early stage start-ups an opportunity to pitch in front of some truly great names in entrepreneurship and venture capital. Five of the start-ups will be chosen by our panel of judges, and one will be the entry with the most “likes” on their video.
Each team will have 10 minutes of stage time in front of the judges and a live audience: four minutes to pitch and six minutes of Q&A. Presentation slides are allowed. LaunchSpot Rapid Pitch judges will select the winners, who will receive start-up-friendly prizes from our sponsors and a chance to get venture funding. Prizes include free office space at LaunchSpot, legal consultation with lawyers from Wong, Fuji & Carter, PC on business law, legal consultation with intellectual property experts at Wright Law Group, PLLC, a business assessment from Tallwave. We have VCs and Angel investors in the audience, so it’s going to be a great opportunity to get your idea in front of private equity and to network!
Out of state ideas? If your pitch application is selected and you’re out of state we can provide airline tickets for travel thanks to US Airways.
The event it open to the public, so if you’re not going to pitch feel free to show up and watch. Please RSVP if you’re planning on attending but not pitching.
