Join our podcast pitch competition and invest in your entrepreneurial dreams...
I’m excited to share the launch of our first Podcast Pitch competition of the year! We’ve got $1,000 in non-dilutive funding available for you to invest in your entrepreneurial dreams. Our Podcast Pitch is a creative take on traditional startup funding competitions helping entrepreneurs get access to much needed capital.
So, who’s eligible to participate?
Every paid member of our Bison Venture Partners Community is eligible to participate. If you're reading this, you’ve already got one foot in! If you’re currently a free subscriber, you can join our community through a monthly or annual subscription. It costs just $1/day to officially Join The Herd!
Why should you participate?
Amplify Your Brand: The last time I organized this, we had 27 founders participate, who collectively gained 21,000+ listens on their episodes. Your startup will be promoted to our global community of 1,300+ readers/listeners, in addition to the other viewers worldwide. It’s a great opportunity to get new eyes and ears on your brand!
Join A Winning Community: KiddieKredit took home 1st place in the first edition, and they recently won a $1 Million pitch competition. Another participant, Wilminvest, recently secured a $750k grant. So remember, practice makes perfect, and small competitions can help prepare you for much bigger wins!
