Midwest Ventures has just launched a competition for startups.

Applications will be accepted until September 5th.

Think your venture is better than the rest? Apply for COMPETE, where Midwest Ventures will be selecting the top 25 startups to be judged by their expert panel. If you are accepted, then you’ll be given a table on the exhibition floor for free. The first round of judging is done à la a science fair, with judges intermingling with attendees to watch your pitch on the exhibition floor. The top five will then be selected for a 3 minute pitch in front of the audience and the panel of judges, where they will undergo a second round of judging. The winner of that pitch competition will take home over $100,000 in cash and services from their sponsors.

Startups applying for the COMPETE category must be less than 3 years old, must have received less than $2m in funding, and must have revenues less than $1m per year. 25 qualifying startups will be chosen and have a free table at midVenturesLAUNCH event, receive media and press on the midVentures LAUNCH website, and their business summaries will be sent to attending investors.
