Common Questions.
Answered.

I submitted my deck... Now what?

As soon as you submit your pitch, all investors are notified and the information is shared with them directly. We'll analyze and comment on deals as a group in order to surface the best pitches to everyone.

If an investor is interested, they'll reach out directly to the email provided. Typically within a couple of weeks, but could be up to 30 days.

We'll do our best to provide a response within 30 days with feedback when we can.

What happens if I don't get a response?

If you don't get a response within 30 days it's likely that no individual investor is interested this time around. We'll do our best to provide feedback to each submission within 30 days, in hopes that you'll be able to iterate and submit again!

Are all pitches really reviewed?

Yes! We have a process that allows us to review every pitch that comes in as a group. We can't promise that every pitch will get a response, but we'll do our best to provide feedback when we can.

What are common reasons for investors to pass on my pitch?

There are many reasons that VCs pass, but typically it stems from three potential conflicts:

1) They don't believe the idea can lead to a $1B+ outcome 🦄

Reaching a $1B valuation would require a clear path to $100m+ in revenue. The truth is most startups won't reach this milestone, and most probably shouldn't aim for it. Investors can come to this conclusion in many ways, but commonly we see these reasons:

  • The market isn't big enough to support this outcome (e.g. the market itself is only $100M). The common mistake investors make here is not seeing where the puck is going (that's your job) - you need to convince them of the future where this market becomes $100B.
  • The market is big enough ($100B), but is saturated with competitors, making it difficult to reach a meaningful percentage. Hard, not impossible - especially if you have a secret edge to capture marketshare.
  • There is no market pull for your idea. Meaning they don't believe customers truly want what you're selling, or that they won't for long.

2) They don't believe you or your team has the necessary skills / experience / etc to reach $1B valuation

This one stings the most, and is also where so many VC mistakes are made. Prove them wrong.

3) Your startups simply doesn't fit their fund or investment thesis

Although it may seem like a common copout for investors, it can also be quite true. Investors raise funds from their own investors (limited partners) in which they've pitched their own vision of the future and how they plan to invest in it. Often times this includes specific (and unique) sectors, geographies and ideologies. Sometimes you're just not the right fit, and it's best to move on.

What type of companies do you look for? What stages? Valuation? Traction?

These are all good questions! The short answer is that between the group of us, we invest in all sectors, stages, valuations and levels of revenue. We also have a large network of investors outside of this group that we will often share pitches with, thus opening up these options even more.

Do I have to be in Colorado to submit?

We'll accept pitches from anywhere, but prioritize local companies in Colorado 🏔

Tell me more about this pitch event.

The short of it is that we will select ~5 companies each quarter and invite them to pitch at a live event full of local investors and fellow startup founders. We will work hand in hand with these selected startups to prepare them for the event. We'll mainly help refine their pitch, but may also help strategize everything from marketing, product and more.
