Capital Competitions


Capital Competitions connect startups that have completed the Springboard mentoring program with the capital they need to grow. Springboard graduates who are considered ready for funding pitch to a panel of C-level industry experts in a final judging panel, where Capital Competition winners are selected. Capital competition winners become CONNECT Portfolio Companies and are eligible to present in the region’s year round investor forums such as the Rock Stars of Innovation Summit ¬†and Demo Day, and private investor events including Deal Networks and Capital Roadshows. Capital Competitions take place four times per year, following each of the four Springboard tracks.
