You know what makes an awesome entrepreneurial ecosystem?
What helps entrepreneurs grow, get press, access capital, and generally rock?
When incubators, co-working spaces, development firms, and funding organizations, come together to support entrepreneurs by putting on a pitch competition.
That is what SEED SPOT is doing with Co+Hoots, Blind Society, Coplex, StartupAZ Foundation, Local First ARIZONA, Nerdery,Stealthmode Partners, Deskhub, CEI, Hopscratch, ATI, Chandler Innovations (powered by Nacet) The Newton, and Giftcard Zen.
On November 14th, 18 entrepreneurs will present their game-changing, big ideas at the first ever Challenge Cup Arizona.
Each venture will pitch for 2 minutes to an expert panel of judges and a live audience. The top three entrepreneurs will be flown up to San Francisco to compete against other entrepreneurs. The winners from San Francisco will then compete in Washington, DC for over $1 million in prizes and receive a week of support from investors, media, potential customers, and other connections to help them succeed.
Having events that highlight and support entrepreneurs creates a stronger ecosystem. Having events with multiple organizations that all support entrepreneurs creates a truly collaborative ecosystem that can support any entrepreneur.
SEED SPOT is proud to be working with other organizations to support entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs are the backbone of a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. Let’s support them with our votes, our cheers, and our love.
