StartUpNV Accelerator | “Pitch Day for $50k”
Every other Wednesday at 2pm | Summer Sessions start on June 9, 2021
See 2 companies pitch for acceptance into the StartUpNV accelerator – and the $50,000 investment from FundNV that comes with it. Pitches are conducted live at our offices in Las Vegas, Reno, and online via zoom.
The public is invited to attend Nevada’s “Shark Tank” – watch the pitches, ask questions, and provide feedback. Our panel of FundNV investors make the final determination of what companies are invited to join the 16 week accelerator.
