Event Details

Funding for early-stage companies is an important part of the support Velocity provides.

 

The Velocity Fund now offers a micro-VC fund and aspiring startups can win an investment through competitions held three times per year. Nine promising startups will compete for 4 investment cheques worth $100,000 in total and earn a spot to incubate their business further in the Velocity Garage!

 

Velocity Garage provides access to workspace, science lab, prototyping lab, and assembly space at no cost to early-stage startups. Startups at the Velocity Garage will also have access to mentorship, coaching, and a network of investors and successful Velocity alumni to support their ambition.

 

Event Schedule

 

9:30 am: The competition begins for four $25K investments.

11:30 am: Post-competition events. After the competition, you will have the chance to meet the $25K companies and other finalists by visiting their booths and speaking directly with the founders at Velocity Garage (Just steps away from the Tannery!)

 

As always, we have tons of prizes to give away to people in the audience! We will be giving away JBL Bluetooth speakers to audience members who predict all four winners correctly or are active on social media. Everyone is welcome to attend, we can’t wait to see you there!
