Investor Sharks Northwest
350 Kirkland Ave
Investor Sharks Northwest is hosted by Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce and Kirkland Performance Center.
The purpose of the event is to help startup businesses from the Greater Seattle and Eastside area gain exposure and compete for a chance to pitch to a panel of investors comprised of the biggest Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors in the Puget Sound region. This is an annual event held each fall on the first Thursday in November.
Our target companies are those that are looking for Seed and Series A rounds of funding. We have not identified a specific industry or niche because we would like to attract a wide range of companies. The culling process will be performed by our investors to ensure viable companies with enthusiasm for pitching to the investment panel. Applications are being taken from businesses who would like to be considered for participation in this high profile pitch competition.
A special student presentation will kick off the show, with the winner of a district-wide competition within the Lake Washington School District presenting to our panel for feedback on an idea. A $2,500 cash prize will be awarded to this group of students, made possible by Lee Johnson Auto Family.
Tickets to watch the event are available for purchase. Investor Sharks Northwest is committed to growing the next generation of entrepreneurs by allocating 150 tickets for students from local high schools and colleges to attend at a very low cost, so each ticket purchased subsidizes a ticket for a student to attend.
