What Is Fundraising Founders?

What Is the Pitch Night Series?
The NAFF Pitch Series, or "Conscious Consumer Pitch Night" is a monthly, casual happy hour style themed pitch series where founders pitch to angel investors and funds to receive feedback, build relationships, have candid conversations about fundraising, and move the needle forward in early stage funding in Central Texas. Startups pitch their businesses for a chance at a second meeting with our guest judges.

How Do the Pitch Events Work?
Each pitch night is themed according to an everchanging carousel of indices, ie: "alcohol brands", "over-100k-in-revenue", "Latinx founders", "direct to consumer", etc. Four startups will give an intro and a 5 minute pitch with up to 5 minutes for Q&A from investors judges and the audience. The judges will score the pitches and choose whether they will Pass or Proceed with a second meeting, why or why not. The pitch with the highest collective score receives a small prize courtesy our sponsors.
