Founders Live Columbus – Summer 2022

The Ultimate Entrepreneurial Experience and Pitch Competition

Join us for an incredible evening as you hang online with other entrepreneurs and hear from 5 awesome Ohio startups.

Founders Live is an unforgettable happy hour competition sweeping the globe where up to five handpicked companies take the hot seat, with only 99 seconds to pitch their company and describe their value proposition in front of an eager audience. After the pitches and audience Q&A, the crowd will vote on a winner who will not only receive an award, but recognition from the crowd and also the opportunity to talk more about their product or service. So bring your friends and coworkers, grab some food and drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs and vote for what you think will be the next big thing… built in the Midwest.

WINNERS – Receive the Founders Live winners package which includes $10,000 in AWS credits as well as the opportunity to continue on to compete in a future Founders Live Prime Time global event.

ALL PRESENTERS EARN $5,000 TOWARDS AWS HOSTING – Founders Live has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide an incredible offer for startups pitching at a Founders Live event. “Amazon Web Services provides startups with low cost, easy to use infrastructure needed to scale and grow any size business.
