Startups wanted: INVEST NY

 Are you running a startup and considering raising capital?


Upstate Capital hosts events every few weeks featuring startups. Check out what’s coming up!

  • October 22 – Invest NY: Energy, Transportation & Impact – for cleantech companies (submission deadline is September 25)

Startups: we want to meet you! 

We’ve got preferences (but not hard requirements):

  • Tech-enabled & defensible market position (intellectual property and market traction all count)
  • Some (or lots) of proven product/market fit
  • Raised some outside capital 

Companies that are selected will be offered 1-1 pitch coaching from an Upstate Capital investor. We’re looking at applications every day. Selection is rolling and we want 10 companies, so apply now!

Investors: we want to meet you too!  The Upstate Capital Association of New York is a membership network for angel, venture and PE investors.  Consider becoming a member to get regular invitations to events like Invest NY, curated introductions, and exclusive members-only benefits.
