Founders Fight Club - Pitch Competition @ Convergence
Think you’re working on an interesting startup? Want to share your vision in front of some of the most active early stage investors in San Diego, and win prizes including mentorship from the MD of the Techstars Anywhere accelerator? Then you should apply to pitch at the Founders Fight Club pitch competition at Convergence on Thursday, February 28 at 8:00pm in The Comic-Con Museum at Balboa Park!

Each round you’ll be matched against another founder, you'll each do a 1-minute pitch without slides, and our panel of entrepreneurs turned investors will ask you questions and provide insightful feedback. The audience will then decide who advances each round, the finals will be a 2-minute pitch, and at the end of the night you could earn bragging rights as the most promising student startup around and the prizes below!

1st Place
• 3 mentorship sessions with Ryan Kuder, the MD of the Techstars Anywhere accelerator (with ~1 month in between each session so you have time to apply what you talk about, execute, and learn)
• An initial scoping meeting & basic incorporation from Pillsbury Law
• A Southwest Airlines voucher that’s good for any domestic flight

2nd Place
