After a successful Season 1 of ‘Artificial Venture Capital Bootcamp', EVC Ventures is all set for its Season 2. EVC Ventures had Sequoia Capital and a few other folks like BW Businessworld, The Boston Consulting Group, YourNest VC Fund, IAN, etc. as partners in Season 1. Next up is the ‘Blockchain Venture Capital Bootcamp’ on the 30th June 2018.
Why VC Bootcamps?
The odds of getting access to Venture Capital funding for an early-stage startup is about 1 in 1000. It's unsurprising that every year many startups come to us asking what is the best way to raise capital and scale their companies. With this in mind, EVC Ventures is creating a series of Bootcamps for Startups to come and showcase their business idea and get VC funding between $100,000 to $5 Million.
Each season has a different theme. The idea behind this initiative is to get startups who have been working in this domain (Blockchain) for over 12 months, with a POC to come and present to set of VC`s/Experts who could potentially be willing to look at these ventures for their respective portfolios or help them accelerate their journey. Only top 10 selected Blockchain startups are invited to make a pitch to a set of jury/keynotes at the Bootcamp.
Highlights of Blockchain Venture Capital Bootcamp:
Pitch ideas to Lead Investors
Find Lead Investors through the competition- Get access to global Investors
Opportunity to have one-on-one interactions with Institutional and other Investors
Close funding with VCs & HNIs
Get VC connects and Customer connects
Startups will present their ideas in 10 minutes live pitch presentation and they will discuss on:
Market Size & Monetization Model
USP & Competitors
Past Investments, if any
Valuation Percentage against Equity
After each presentation, 10 minutes are allocated for the Q&A session.
