TEDCO’s Prelude Pitch

Prelude Pitch

Prelude Pitch

Find out if your Start-Up is investor ready. Each month, TEDCO invites five companies to give their pitch. They will pitch in front of our team members and experienced mentors to receive valuable feedback and an introduction to TEDCO’s community.


Prelude Pitch was designed to help companies practice their pitch without the stress of a real pitch for funding.

There is no funding opportunity tied to this pitch. Instead, it is an opportunity to introduce your company to TEDCO, learn about other TEDCO programs, and receive honest feedback and advice from experts that will help you better present and be better prepared in front of future investors.

Entrepreneurs are encouraged to sit in on other pitches the same day for added insights and stay to network with our team, mentors, and other entrepreneurs.

At each Prelude Pitch, presenting companies receive:

  • 10 Minutes to pitch
  • 10 Minutes of Q&A
  • 10 Minutes of feedback

To participate in Prelude Pitch, companies must be startups (or early-stage businesses) that are developing new technologies/products or utilizing technology in new ways to create or expand their business.

Location and Dates

The Prelude Pitch is held primarily online using Zoom and at various locations monthly. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

TEDCO will determine dates and times based on invitation.
