Get Your Brand In Front Of Startups And Investors

 

Sponsor 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.

Why Do You Want To Be A Sponsor?

  • Get your products and services in front of audiences of founders and investors.
  • Gain brand awareness and visibility as a company that supports the startup community.
  • Create partnerships with our investor networks.

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, startups can submit their interest to be a part of the Virtual Series podcast, or the $50K Competition Pitch Competition.

Each founder 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.

Sponsorship Visibility

Virtual Venture Battles Episodes

Our sponsors will be featured in every episode during the series of 12 episodes that will be live-streamed and recorded accessible on all of our podcast hosting channels for future viewers.

Sponsor visibility will be placed in the beginning of the show, and in between company pitches as we transition from company to company.

We intend to cast guest investors from Angel Investor Networks and Venture Capital firms as an influencer marketing strategy to grow our audience base and gaining sponsorship visibility.

Email Visibility

As new founders and investors submit their interest to be on the show, our email list is expected to grow consistently.

Emails will be sent out to our list weekly that include founder and investor biographies, episode reminders, and recorded episodes of the show.

Sponsorship visibility will be placed at the footer of every email with a clickable link redirecting to your targeted page

In-Person Signage, Banner Logo Placement, and Live Pitch During Competition

Sponsors will have visibility during the in-person competition through tabletop signage, banner logo placement at the photo booth, and a featured in-person pitch during the competition.

Important Sponsor Details – Read Carefully

Sponsors With Shared Values

We are looking to accept sponsors that have shared values with us as an organization. We aim to promote competition and collaboration within our startup community, and intend to partner with organizations providing mutual value in this space.

Sponsorship Availabilities

We are only limited to providing 3 Gold sponsorship availabilities throughout the entire Virtual Series. This is because the Virtual Series will only have the capacity to promote three sponsored advertisements per episode, in order to prevent “sponsor fatigue” to our viewers.
