Online applications open for early-stage startups; eight to be awarded $100,000
“The Render Competition opens the door for early-stage startups to gain access to capital that has traditionally been difficult to acquire at this level. In addition to the investment the eight winning startups will receive from Render Capital, they will also receive free office space, over fifteen hours of one-on-one pro bono consulting, and memberships, discounts, and perks valued at over $1 million dollars made possible through the support of our generous partners."
Marigrace Ragsdale, Senior Associate with Render Capital.
Companies from any industry can apply for the Render Competition, which aims to fund high-growth startups that are typically technology-forward, that can also grow quickly and significantly. These are companies that will most likely seek venture capital funding in order to fuel their growth into other markets. Startups from any location can apply; however, winners who do not live in the Greater Louisville region must relocate their headquarters to this area.
