CBA will raise funds from its international investors, advisory and access to global mentorship. We will hold monthly pitching events across key cities in India, to select the best startups from them, & present them to our global investor network. The criteria for selecting startups is the same as reflected on the CBA website.
The startups are expected to be very clear on their business model & should have demonstrated traction & basic market validation of the idea. The focus is sector agnostic, with technology being an enabler & globally scalable business frameworks. Startups will get 3 minute pitch to the panel followed by a 2 Minute rapid fire Q&A. We will then share the results to the selected Startups in a week's time.
We do not charge anything for presenting at Pitch2CBA event.
Should you be selected to pitch to CBA's international network, a presentation fee of US $250 will be applicable for fund raise up to $250,000. For any fund raise above US $250,000, a standard US $500 presentation fee is applicable. Upon successful fund raising a success fee of 5% is applicable on fund raised by domestic investors and 7% on international investors through introduction made by CBA.
Please note that, at the max, 20 startups can pitch per city. Hence, please register here for the Bengaluru session.
Last date for accepting entries for the event is 22nd May. Shortlisted Startups will be notified by 23rd May.
