Concept $5K grant applications openExport this event to calendar

Monday, September 30, 2019 — 9:00 AM to Monday, October 21, 2019 — 12:55 PM EDT

From a doodle in your notebook to a pitch on stage. Applications are now open for the Concept $5K Grant!

Previously known as the Velocity Fund $5K, the Concept $5K Grant provides funding in a way that is impactful to students by incorporating pitch experience into its funding program. Students are eligible to apply to pitch an early-stage startup idea to qualify for a chance to win one of four $5,000 grants.

The top applicants that submit a written application will be invited to make a 3-minute pitch in front of a panel of judges at one of the Concept $5K Semi-Finals on November 5 and 6. All teams will get helpful feedback on their idea, and the top 10 teams from the Concept $5K Semi-Finals will move on to pitch at the Concept $5K Finals on November 20 to compete for a share of $20,000.
