Funding for early stage companies is an important part of the support Velocity provides. The Velocity Fund is a grant program for startups and aspiring entrepreneurs to win funding through competitions held three times per year. Before the day is out, we will have awarded $125,000 in funding! Join us for a jam-packed day including: 

  • 11 AM: Three $5K grants for very early stage student-run startups are on the line.
  • 12 PM: Time to mix and mingle with the $5K pitch companies while enjoying a free boxed lunch courtesy of Velocity!  Lunches are limited: first-come, first-served.
  • 1 PM: The competition begins for four $25K prizes that are awarded to early-stage startups, with the top winning hardware or science company receiving an additional $10K! The four winning companies will also earn a spot in the Velocity Garage program. 

After the competition, you will have the chance to meet the $25K companies and get to know them better by visiting their booths and speaking directly with the founders.

We also have tons of Velocity swag to give away to people in the audience! 5 lucky people will even receive a Google Home! We can't wait to see you there!
