Our December BATTLE OF THE PITCHES. Where the winners of July-November's pitch battles compete for the final round to win big prizes.
Join some of Colorado's most promising startups, as they pitch their awesome ideas like THE UBER FOR TOILETS in front of a panel of badass judges and an audience of hungry consumers.
Oh, and one more thing: DRINKS INCLUDED, courtesy of our amazing SPONSOR ZEPHYR BREWING.
To help Colorado's budding entrepreneurs connect with the amazing startup community here and find people who will help them in their epic journey towards UNICORN-DOM.
Watch as former Startup Denver pitch-winners battle it out.
Winner takes all. Or some. Most. Winner takes most.
The grand-prize might include: a blow-up office chair! (If those exist!)
(And thousands of dollars in other prizes, including legal credits, marketing help and promotional materials.)
And maybe a large sum of the money.
Maybe a smaller sum of money, to the tune of anywhere between $0 and $1,000.
This is the last-chance -- nope, this is a chance to prove themselves to the world.
They will have more chances, but this is a great one.
They'll be cut down by superstar judges from all over Denver. Including badass venture capitalists, serial entrepeneurs and maybe even some billionaires.
Maybe just criticized, but still. That criticism will be vicious!
It will sting!

And a huge shout-out to some of our amazing sponsors...
Rocky Mountain Patent -- Have an idea, and want help turning it into a business? These guys are totally awesome, and we've sent a number of our startups to them to great success. Need help launching your next idea?
Boomtown Boulder - If you haven't heard of Boomtown, you've probably heard of some of the dozens of hyper-successful companies they've churned out since their inception. Most recently? McSquares, led by one of our judges Anthony Franco and since then, several Startup Denver alum, including Bold Betties and Indicard. Each team who's selected gets $20,000 in investment capital, access to world-class mentorship and a program that's second-to-none. Sound like something that'd be up your alley?
Zephyr Brewing - A small Denver craft brewery, with awesome vibes and even better beer. Beer. They have beer and it's excellent, and they love hosting small (or large) events. Book your next event with them here.
Bowtie - Bowtie's been helping startups and entrepreneurs (and much larger companies, too) get their MVPs up-and-running and launching them into the ether of The World of Public Consciousness from Day 1. They are awesome - we've been working with them on our newly revamped website - and they've recently started offering more full-fledged consutling services for the companies that need them.
