Rockies Venture Club (RVC) is excited to host this event as a part of Fort Collins Startup Week. RVC investors pride themselves on being “anti-sharks” and negotiating fair deals for all parties, unlike ABC’s Shark Tank investors who often take 50% or more for their investment. Anti-sharks do well by aligning investments with founders and focusing on the exit strategy. We hope that after this event you will start thinking more like an anti-shark and help turn red oceans blue.

The event will consist of two rounds. In the first round each company will give their 5 minute pitch with 5 minutes for feedback and Q&A from the judges. After each pitch the audience will have the chance to rate the presenter on the quality of the pitch and the quality of the investment opportunity. After every company has pitched the votes will be paired with the judge’s votes and the top two companies will move onto the second round. In this second round the companies will pitch their exit strategy to the judges. Again the audience will have the chance to vote and from there the top company will be announced.
