Elevate Nexus provides resources and thought leadership to Indiana higher-education institutions and the entrepreneurs they engage. Elevate Nexus Pitch Competitions offer promising startups, preferably engaged with Elevate Nexus partnered colleges and universities, the opportunity to secure foundational capital needed to launch their businesses.

At this event, startups will have 10 minutes to pitch and respond to questions from a panel of Elevate Ventures judges. Three $20,000 pre-seed and two $80,000 seed i will be awarded to the startups that provide the best pitches. Winning companies will also gain access to all resources Elevate Ventures provides portfolio businesses and will be invited to pitch again for additional funding at an August 2023 statewide pitch competition.

Parking/Location Details

The Nexus Southern Regional Pitch Competition will take place at The Mill's Event Hall. While there is an entrance at the lower level, that door will be locked to lower the distractions for pitching companies. Please use the main entrance (see image below).

Please plan extra time to park and walk. The closest parking is the Trades District Parking Garage (489 W. 10th Street Bloomington IN 47404), located on 10th & Rogers. The hourly rate is $0.50 per hour (accepts cash, Visa, and MasterCard). It is about one city block from The Mill. There is also metered parking on 11th Street.
