SBAC Venture Pitch Application
The Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) will host its next Venture Pitch event on May 9, 2019, giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their products or services before a panel of distinguished judges, and in front of a live audience to both generate awareness in the market and, where appropriate, pursue funding for their company’s continued growth.

If you’re a start-up or emerging business with a story to tell and a mission to achieve, we invite you to submit this application along with a 3 minute elevator style pitch video. Please create your video using Screencastify (https://www.screencastify.com). Candidates will be evaluated based upon their ability to provide clear and compelling information that positions them as a standout candidate for the event. The winning company will receive a prize package including shipping credits from UPS!

Please provide the information below and send the required video to Steve Bank Jr at steve@sbacil.org by 5:00pm (CST) on April 5, 2019 to be considered for the next Venture Pitch on May 9, 2019.

The Fine Print
If you do not intend to use the SBAC Venture Pitch Event to solicit investment, please do not discuss any funding needed or use of funds raised during your pitch. If you do plan to include a discussion of funding, please be advised that attendance at the Venture Pitch event is not limited to persons with whom the organizer of the event has a pre-existing, substantive relationship and, accordingly, you may be generally soliciting investors for purposes of the federal securities regulations. In the event of a general solicitation for investment, the securities laws require your company to take reasonable steps to verify that each of its investors is an “accredited investor,” generally meaning those individuals with a $1 million net worth or repeated annual income in excess of $200,000 or $300,000 with his/her spouse. Please note, that this is not intended to be legal advice and this does not create an attorney-client relationship. If you need legal advice, please contact an attorney.
Please check the box below to confirm you have read the important details above...and don't forget to send your video to Steve Banke Jr at steve@sbacil.org by 5pm cst on April 5, 2019! *
