Rockies Venture Club (RVC) will be supporting the CSU Collegiate Challenge once again this year by holding their “Investor Triage” sessions. These special sessions will provide accredited investors from Northern Colorado and beyond the chance to supply feedback and advice to competing, collegiate companies.
The CSU Collegiate Challenge is unique in its focus on providing enriching, educational experiences for every competitor including expert feedback from angel investors and experienced entrepreneurs. The RVC Investor Triage session will be instrumental in supporting the educational focus for the competitors.
The Investor Triage will leverage the wisdom of the investor crowd to supply a group evaluation to pitching companies seeking investment. All competing companies will be discussed in the Investor Triage, and companies will later be invited to sit-in on a follow-up session with investors and the RVC team for a deeper dive. Each competitor will then receive a feedback report from RVC outlining the the investor feedback, investor questions, due diligence issues and advice on next steps.
If you are an accredited investor, come on down to the competition and take part in the Investor Triage!
