The Charlotte Venture Challenge is a start-up competition for early-stage high growth companies. The competition has a history of producing and showcasing some of the Southeast’s most successful early-stage companies. In the last three years, over 300 start-up companies entered the competition for the opportunity to present to potential investors, first customers, and the chance to win over $150,000 in cash prizes.
The competition supplies resources, recognition and connections to competitors as they advance through the various stages. The competition includes a series of workshops to prepare teams for the various rounds of competition. Over the course of three months, participants will learn about opportunity assessments, receive mentoring and connect with other entrepreneurs. During the final rounds of competition the finalists present to Angel and Venture Capital Investors and large potential customers (Fortune 500 Corps.).
