GEA’s Angel Pitch | April 12th at 6pm (invite only)

3 Apr

The angel pitch is an invite-only event held on April 12th at 6pm.

The GEA will host the top 8 student teams at CU and a handful of actively investing angels. The angels are attending to give feedback and, if the opportunity makes sense, possibly investment. The top teams will be chosen in advance by a panel of judges.

When: April 12th from 6 to 8 pm
Format: 5 min pitch, 5 min Q&A
Students: apply here to pitch your business (due 4/6)
Angels: reach out to for an invite.

This is the first event of its kind at CU and we hope it will become a yearly tradition that increases the amount of funding available to smart and ambitious student entrepreneurs.

Thanks in advance for your participation and support!
