VentureClash is Connecticut’s global venture challenge for early-stage companies. We are identifying companies ready to open the US marketplace and establish US headquarters in Connecticut. While we are accepting applications from all industries, our 300+ portfolio companies are predominantly in

technology, consumer, healthcare and greentech. The evening event will feature brief presentations from company founders/executives, who will pitch to a panel of prominent investors and help CI select companies best positioned to succeed in the US and globally.

How does it work?
VentureClash and Connecticut Innovations, Connecticut’s venture capital arm, have invested in a dozen Israeli companies over the past two years, and we are looking to invest $3 million more in the coming six months (CI invests ~$50M/year in new and existing companies).

In addition to an investment, selected companies will also receive up to $5,000 to defray the cost of a Connecticut visit, where founders will have an opportunity to meet with key state partners.

Companies will have approximately 10 minutes to present and there will be additional time for judges questions.

Investments will be made following the pitch event and are subject to due diligence.

Who is eligible?
• Companies in business for at least one year
• Companies with paying customers or customers who are actively testing their product
• Companies that agree to our terms and conditions, which include maintaining a presence in Connecticut
• Companies that have raised at least $1 million
