Elevate Ventures sponsors one of the largest pitch competitions in Indy

Gaining access to capital is essential for any business, but it can be challenging to secure funding without knowing how to sell yourself to potential investors.

Elevate Ventures, one of the most active seed and early-stage investors in the Great Lakes, has invested more than $156 million in over 500 companies, making it easier for entrepreneurs to gain access to capital.

Elevate Ventures CEO Christopher Day shared that the company invests in cross-sectors, ranging from software to hard tech, healthcare, food, sports tech, and more. The organization invests between $20,000 to $2 million in any given round, with up to $4 million in a particular company. They currently have $215 million in assets under management and a single LP, the state of Indiana through the Indiana Business Corporation.

Elevate Ventures is sponsoring one of the largest pitch competitions in the country Rally. It is an innovation conference that aims to bring together disparate stakeholders from foundations, universities, and businesses to build better communities and help more companies form and grow faster. Rally will also feature a $5 million pitch competition split across five sectors: software, hard tech, healthcare, food, and sports tech.

Early bird tickets for Rally are now available, and the applications for the pitch competition are due on May 19th. Visit the following website to purchase tickets:

Elevate Ventures hopes that Rally will provide more accessibility to capital, mentors, vendors, and advisors to help entrepreneurs achieve their next milestone.
