Have an idea or high-tech startup you want to pitch? Would you like to pitch to one of the Southeast’s most active seed and early stage venture capital firms? Then join the IDEA Fund Partners team for IDEA Pitch!Whether you’re seeking to raise capital, network or cold call, it’s essential that you have a descriptive, concise and well rehearsed elevator pitch. Come, listen and learn what investors are looking for in an elevator pitch from our team of active investment professionals. IDEA Pitch, held bimonthly, enables entrepreneurs to meet our team and have the opportunity to pitch their high-tech idea or startup.
We're excited to have Dave Neal, Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Startup Factory, join us as our Special Guest at the December event.

Thanks to our sponsors Hughes Pittman & Gupton, LLP and HQ. We keep the format simple. Three entrepreneurs will be selected based on prior attendance and fit with our investment criteria. Each entrepreneur will have 2 minutes to deliver their elevator pitch to members of our investment team and fellow entrepreneurs in attendance. Following each pitch, the entrepreneur will have 15 minutes to address specific questions from the audience and receive pitch-specific feedback. We also regularly invite special guests – CEOs of area startups, local angel investors and other VCs – to provide added feedback. At the conclusion of the pitches, you’ll have the opportunity to network with members of our team and fellow members of the startup ecosystem over coffee and bagels.
