A venture capital pitch competition with cash and services prizes over $25k, open to all Maryland-based startups, will set the stage for Founder City.

Utilizing an app-based video pitch platform, Thumbraise, we’ve created a place where founders and investors can connect in a more meaningful way. Stand apart by incorporating video into your pitch. Track views with analytics, book meetings, collect feedback and questions. All applicants receive feedback directly on the platform which brings more exposure, more capital, and more mentorship.

Founder City brings together into one place some of the most essential pillars of the startup community; demos, pitches, capital, mentorship and connection.

Programming focused around Inspiration, Innovation and Interconnection will highlight our region’s best and brightest, providing exceptional value to the entrepreneurial ecosystem. WE WANT MORE – for our founders, investors and ecosystem leaders in Maryland.
