Our signature event draws active investors and pits the most promising startups against each other live on stage in a ‘Shark Tank’ style, action-packed event. See innovative, early-stage companies all in one place.
The competition starts with selected presenting companies grouped into distinct categories based on industry focus. The companies are chosen by an expert selection panel, then the finalist companies advance to the live-demo portion of the contest held at various venues throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
Leading up to the event, finalist companies will get expert mentorship from seasoned investors, business leaders and other successful entrepreneurs in preparation for the competition. At the live event, they’ll compete in head-to-head pitches in each category for a chance to win cash, and most importantly, get exposure for their company while building an invaluable network of the Southwest’s most active investors who attend Venture Madness specifically to grow their investment portfolios with the next heroes!
Please Note: If your company is selected to present, your CEO will be required to attend our Presenting Company Orientation and Mentor Sessions held in in the two months prior to the conference.
