Virtual Pitch Event: Connect With Capital™

Eighteen Ventures will host Connect With Capital™.  Connect With Capital™ is a quarterly virtual pitch event designed to bring together Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program health technology, biomedical, biotechnology healthcare, and MedTech/medical device project winners and private sector early stage investors.

SBIR project winners from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Defense SBIR programs are selected as presenters. Private investors representing Venture Capital Firms, Health System Venture Funds, Healthcare Corporate Venture Capital Funds and Pharmaceutical Venture Funds are invited as panelists.

Small firms will pitch live, via Microsoft Teams, to a private sector investor panel. Each presenter will have ten (10) minutes to pitch their healthcare or medical solution and supporting business model. Then the panel will ask presenters questions about the projects.

To qualify and participate as a presenter, potential applicants must meet the following guidelines:

 - Possess a well-defined, focused, realistic, actionable 20-page business model.
