GENIUS NY Pitch Finals

Go Back

Join us as we award $3 million to the five startups in the 2021 GENIUS NY accelerator cohort; the grand prize is $1 million while the four remaining startups receive $500K.

Each team will get 5 minutes to tell their story - who they are, what problem they're solving, how they plan to scale, and why they want to do it in Central New York! Following the pitch there will be a Q/A from our judges.

Throughout the premiere there will be chances for the audience to get involved and win prizes!

Sponsored by Hancock Estabrook LLP; OneGroup; Dermody, Burke & Brown CPAs, LLC; Thales; Hidden Level; and Newman and Lickstein.
