Capital Connects

Join us on March 14, 2024 for Capital Connects in Greensboro, North Carolina!

About Capital Connects

Running for more than 20 years, this event serves as a bridge between investors and entrepreneurs seeking capital for their companies.

Our team helps entrepreneurs craft and refine their pitches for weeks before the event, ensuring the presentations are top-notch by the time judges and investors see them.

Eleven startups will pitch for 5 minutes each to a panel of expert judges for a chance to receive both cash and in-kind services. Just as valuable as the monetary rewards are the connections entrepreneurs make with each other and investors.

In addition to the winner chosen by our panel, the audience votes on a Fan Favorite.

Join us to meet entrepreneurs and find your next deal!

Presented by Launch Greensboro, the entrepreneurial arm of the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce.
