The Founder Showcase is a global seed-stage pitch competition in Silicon Valley, which is attended by over 400 investors, founders, and press.

Now in its 16th edition, we are proud to announce that previous Founder Showcase Contestants have now raised over $355 million. Past contestants include companies like Udemy, Relay Rides, Thumbtack, Kaggle, and many more. See our Founder Showcase Hall of Fame here.
