About Elevate Origins Pre-Seed and Seed Programs
Elevate Origins Pre-Seed and Seed Programs provide virtual group learning, one-on-one coaching and live pitch practice to startups. The Elevate Origins Pre-Seed Program is specifically for startups that have not yet generated revenue. Aspiring entrepreneurs who may not have a business idea yet, or instructors of entrepreneurship classes that are looking to supplement their classwork with institutional investor-designed programming, are also encouraged to participate and will find value in the content.
The Elevate Origins Seed Program is reserved for revenue-generating startups and for life science companies that have completed pre-clinical trials. This training places a greater emphasis on developing business models, pitch decks, and executive summaries from lessons learned and data collected.
For both programs, participants will develop investor-ready pitch decks and executive summaries appropriate for their business stage. Ultimately, they will have all the tools needed to compete for an Elevate Nexus Pre-Seed or Seed Pitch Competition Award, where every year 35 investments ranging from $20,000-$100,000 are made in Indiana-based startups.
Elevate Origins is offered at no cost to the entrepreneurs. Funding to operate Elevate Origins comes from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and U.S. Economic Development Agency.
