Venture Battles is a show for early stage tech startup companies, where founders pitch investors for a chance to receive money.

The $50K Venture Battle Pitch Competition is a live event where 12 startup companies compete for a $50,000 cash investment into the first place winner.

This competition is presented by the CI Tech Ventures team, who alongside with the panel of investing judges are looking to invest in their next unicorn.

Venture Battles

Season 1

Venture Battles was launched April 2022, where the first group of 12 founders pitched our panel of accredited investing judges, and 6 of them made it to the final round.

The finalists competed in a live 5 minute in-person pitch to the same panel of investing judges and a live audience of accredited investors, to which one company took home the $50,000 grand prize cash investment.

Our first $50,000 winner, Team Prospect with the Investing Judges

In this next season of Venture Battles, founders can submit their interest to be a part of the Virtual Series podcast, or the $50K Competition Pitch Competition.

Each company that is accepted on either the Virtual Series or the $50K Pitch Competition will have their own unique channel on our Venture Battles Community platform where online viewers can engage directly and increase your chances for receiving an investment or partnership from our audience outside of the show.
