Quarterly pitch competition Atlanta Startup Battle, held by VC fund TechSquare Labs, gives early-stage startups a unique opportunity — to compete against other high-growth companies for a $100K investment. Throughout the competition, top participants get to develop their ideas with seasoned mentors before presenting to active venture capital investors, both local and from around the country.
Let’s break that down: the top ten Startup Battle applicants receive a full day of hands-on mentorship from experts in user experience, go-to-market strategy, brand refinement and engineering. They then pitch real investors — with $1B worth of portfolio investments — and make long-lasting networking breakthroughs.
The main event
The top five teams will move on to pitch onstage on April 23 in front of a crowd of 500. Wow investors, community leaders, fellow entrepreneurs, and most importantly, the judges, to win the $100,000 investment.
Following the competition, attendees and participants will have the opportunity to celebrate these future technology leaders with drinks, music and networking. You never know what will happen — the last Startup Battle saw two companies crowned winners.
Deadline to compete
The deadline to apply has been extended to March 16. Startups, submit your application here.
