SUBMIT PITCH NOW

Our aim is to identify, finance and actively assist disruptive and innovative technology startups. Passionate and visionary entrepreneurs in addition to great concept excites us.

The fund plans to cast a wide net for high growth target seed investments and provide critical support to entrepreneurs to address teething problems as they scale to be iconic companies of the future.

WHY SHOULD
I PITCH

Because people who win take action. You may have the best idea in the world but without sharing it with people who can or may want to help you, it might as well just stay an idea. But where do you start, how do you stand out from the crowd and how do you find investors to pitch to? You start with Survive and Thrive Today, where over thirty investors will have an opportunity to hear your pitch. Lastly, we know that you are serious about the success of your business, so act now.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOUR BUSINESS TO PITCH

It’s a myth that it’s all about the money. It is only half the truth. Money is really important but relationships, partnerships, knowledge and guidance are equally important to startups. What it means for you to pitch is that you could get it all…money, mentors, support, partners, guidance and knowledge all in one place…Survive and Thrive Today is a community every startup needs and our only goal is to see you go from surviving to thriving.

SUBMIT YOUR PITCH BEFORE JULY 31, 2018

Because we are looking for people who are action oriented and since we have limited capacity, only 50 company pitches will be accepted on a merit basis. Ten of those companies will become finalists to pitch to the Survive and Thrive Venture Fund and a highly diverse set of investors. However, everyone will have an opportunity over the 3 days to connect with investors and mentors.
