Seed Round Capital’s Pitch Event: Cohort #2
December Pitch Event: We’ll have 5 early-stage startups do 5 min pitches each. We think monthly pitch events are the most effective way for us to showcase the startups we are most excited about. We meet with and evaluate over 80 startups a month.
Typical criteria of the companies you will see pitch:
– Current Traction: $3K+/month in revenue, or +/-$100K in annual recurring revenue.
– Current Round Size: $500K – $1.5M total. (Pre-seed and seed round investments.)
– Prior Funding: Less than $500K in prior outside investment.
– Founder and Team: We like to see at least two full-time founders working in the business.
– Growth Opportunity: We target businesses that can scale to $100M+ in value.
At the end of the event, we submit a poll and ask attendees and the judges to pick their favorite pitch. The winner gets bragging rights.
