SBACNow & Rev3 Innovation Center have teamed up to bring you the Suburban Venture Pitch Session.
Join us on October 8th to see three start-up companies pitch to a prestigious panel of judges for funding and advice. This event will kick off at Rev3 for a welcome reception and happy hour. Following the Welcome Reception we will move into the NIU Naperville event hall for the main event. The main event will feature Alex Bratton, CEO & Chief Geek at LexTech. Afterward three of the top suburban start-ups will pitch to a panel of judges and the audience. The audience will have the opportunity to live vote for the company they feel deserves to win. We will be announcing a winner shortly after the companies are done pitching.
We are seeking applicants to have the opportunity to pitch to the top judges in the Chicagoland area and an audience comprised of investors, start-up enthusiast and techpreneurs.
The fee to apply to pitch is $35 per company. Please register and select Pitch Applicant to submit your application. Companies applying to pitch will be vetted by a selection committee to the final three. Each company will be required to submit a pitch deck for the selection committee to review and have the opportunity to make a mock pitch video for the selection committee to review.
Important: The pitch duration is five minutes. After the pitch is complete the judges will have five minutes to ask the companies questions. The audience will also be live tweeting during the event, which the companies will be answering a select few.
