Be A Guest Investor On The Next Season Of Venture Battles

What is Venture Battles?

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

The two-part show consists of a Virtual Series podcast and an in-person $50K Competition.

The Venture Battles Virtual Series podcast is where 3 highly vetted startup founders pitch 3 early stage accredited investors in a 60-90 minute live streamed virtual episode. The entire season consists of 12 Virtual Series episodes.

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 and investors 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.
