Capital Connects

Join us in 2023 for Launch Greensboro’s annual pitch competition for entrepreneurs.

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.

There are two competitions: a two-minute lightning round for seed-stage businesses and a six-minute pitch for Series A-stage businesses. A panel of expert judges chooses a winner in each category, and they 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 winners 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.
