Quake’s monthly University Investor Series (UIS) is a virtual pitchfest where student entrepreneurs from around the world present to a panel of top seed and early stage investors. After each startup has presented, the top-performing companies, as determined by our investor panel, will advance to a final round where they will be eligible for up to $25,000 in funding from Quake in the form of an uncapped convertible note.
After the pitch, each team will receive analytical feedback from our judging panel. The panel includes members of the Quake team, investors from other seed and early stage funds, and industry professionals that work in the startup space.
Each pitchfest brings in 10 promising college startups from around the world. One student spokesperson from each team has six minutes to pitch their idea and four minutes for Q&A and feedback from experienced professionals.
The top 2-3 teams from each Series are invited to attend our Elite Series, which occurs once every three months. Out of every Elite Series, one team will be chosen to receive a real-money $25,000 investment from Quake's seed fund.
