Submissions now closed
The How
Any growth-stage company that fits the criteria may apply by the August 31st deadline. Applicants will be reviewed thoroughly and finalists will be chosen and notified by September 5th.
In a uniquely different format than a traditional pitch competition – created at the request of growth-stage firms – finalists will pitch in a private setting to help protect the integrity of sensitive information.
All finalists will be given stage time at Silicon Slopes Summit ‘22 to present an elevator pitch. Should a winning company be funded, the winner can expect to be funded in the range of $5-15M, depending on needs, valuation, and terms.
The Who
We welcome the application of any growth-stage business with $5-25M in revenue (or ARR) and profitable unit economics—and ideally a track record of or line of sight to profitability. Any technology or consumer/retail businesses that match our broader criteria are welcome, but preference leans toward SaaS and eCommerce. A few noteworthy characteristics to consider:
  • Businesses that are bootstrapped to date are more appealing (if they’ve raised venture capital, pre-Series A is preferred)
  • Businesses with “sticky” offerings, strong repeat revenue, net retention, and LTV:CAC
  • Preference for highly fragmented markets that are ripe for disruption / innovation and have significant tailwinds
