Now You Can Go Further Faster

Startup Showdown offers early-stage startups the chance to pitch investors and increase their visibility among an expanded investor network.

Every submitted application is reviewed by the BIP Ventures Investment team.

All semifinalists benefit from Mentor Day, where they will refine their pitch in front of experienced founders and other tech executives.

Five finalists are selected to compete on stage in front of a panel of guest investor judges, where we invest $120,000 in exchange for 7% of your company.

In addition to the investment, the winners of Startup Showdown get access to a wide variety of resources and opportunities as a full-fledged member of the BIP Ventures portfolio. We have a dedicated Performance Engineering team in-house to help our founders navigate the challenges and hurdles early-stage startups need to overcome to succeed.
