Pitch competition for BLP students who have demonstrated venture maturity and are seeking pre-seed funds. 

 

Blackstone LaunchPad would like to extend an invitation for you and your venture to participate in our Warrior Fund Pitch Competition on Friday October 2nd. This pitch competition is for BLP students who have demonstrated venture maturity and are seeking pre-seed funds. The Warrior Fund can provide up to $5,000 in startup capital for scalable student businesses.  This is a grant, not a loan. You do not have to give up equity if you receive this award.

 

Requirements:

 

Must be a WSU student

Demonstrate thorough understanding of the business elements involved to get their product/service to market (market, competitors, customers, channels, sales, etc.)

Have a scalable venture that requires small initial funding to execute proof of concept or implement

Participate in our Warrior Fund Pitch Prep Session on Friday September 18th at 11:00am-1:00pm

 

If interested, please come in to Blackstone LaunchPad for a Venture Assessment Meeting by Friday, August 14th. To schedule a meeting, please contact Brian Gerhardt at fj7091@wayne.edu.
