BATTLE CREEK, MICH. — Brandjectory, an online platform dedicated to connecting early-stage consumer products entrepreneurs to investors, is hosting an inaugural pitch competition. The virtual, two-hour event will be held on Sept. 14 and is free to attend.
Founded by three industry veterans, Brandjectory provides access to business education, networking opportunities and one-on-one coaching with investors and experts to startup founders seeking seed capital. Since its launch, Brandjectory has facilitated more than 1,300 connections between founders and investors.
The pitch slam is open to Brandjectory premium subscribers, and applications will be accepted through Aug. 15 at brandjectory.eb-sites.com/PitchSlam2022. All applicants will receive feedback from investors. Five finalists will receive investor coaching prior to the event, and the winner will be awarded a cash prize, plus additional prizes.
“Everything we do at Brandjectory is designed to help CPG founders navigate the fundraising process and become comfortable communicating and working with investors,” said Michael Movitz, co-founder of Brandjectory. “While we provide a great deal of business education, our ultimate goal is to help founders clearly understand what investors are thinking, what they are looking for, and what they want to hear to know that a brand founder has built an investor-ready business. That is why we want to make sure all applicants get investor feedback, even if they are not a finalist.”
Additional perks of a premium membership include invitations to all Brandjectory events and meet-ups; participation in coaching and mentoring with investors, buyers, brand marketers, product segment experts and more; a founder-only discussion forum; access to hundreds of articles from experts and partners; and brand exposure to a community of more than 500 investors.
“The Pitch Slam is just one more opportunity to provide value to our Premium members,” said Susan Bryenton, co-founder of Brandjectory. “We are constantly adding features, speakers, events, new discussion topics and many more opportunities for CPG founders to learn and interact with CPG investors and industry experts. We are pleased to know the process is working. Not only are founders and investors connecting and continuing the conversation, we are learning of funding that is beginning to occur.”Startup founders may learn more or register for a premium membership at brandjectorynow.com.
