How It Works
Here’s how the application process works:
- We had two deadlines for submitting your first round application:
- Early bird submission deadline ($50 fee): APRIL 12, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
- Final submission deadline ($100 fee): MAY 24, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
- In the summer, we’ll have our semifinals round, with live video conference pitches.
- During 43North Week in October 2017, up to 20 carefully selected companies will be flown in to BUFFALO, NY (all-expenses-paid) to pitch live, in-person. Eight winners will be selected to receive a cut of $5 MILLION in cash prizes, as well as mentorship and incubator space.
Here are TWO KEY POINTS for 43North competitors to understand:
- Winners agree to locate their companies in BUFFALO, NY for a minimum of 12 months, beginning in January 2018. And just ask our past winners – you’re going to love it here!
- 43North takes a 5% equity stake in each of our winning companies, regardless of cash award size.
