The Kirkland Investor Sharks is an event previously known as Kirkland Investor Sharks and is hosted by the Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce and the Kirkland Performance Center.
Presenting startup companies:
• Zeacon – A real-time search and connection platform that connects business to the right customers in your community.
• Perfect Pour – Creating the perfect cocktail, every time.
• Sanjara Wellness – Raising the bar in treatment of addiction, trauma, and depression.
• Extentek LLC (student group) – Functional products for the visually impaired.
• Cavness HR – Automated HR expertise for small businesses.
Investor Sharks Northwest provides local startup businesses with an opportunity to pitch to a panel of some of the renowned Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors in the Pacific Northwest Region.
We are excited to welcome back Jeff Peterson, VP of Marketing for GoDaddy, as our moderator for this event. The panel will consist of Gregg Bennett, Vice Chairman of the Alliance of Angels, Todd Humphrey, Greg Hause, and Matthew Bennett, local independent angel investor.
Included in the program is the winner of the “Teen Startup Challenge” – a district-wide competition held last spring in the Lake Washington School District. Several student groups competed for the best idea for a new product or service, and the winning group, Eventek, is excited to present to this prestigious panel of real investors.
In keeping with the spirit of fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs, each general admission ticket sold funds a student ticket pool, in which 150 tickets are provided to local area high school and college students to join the action for a very low cost. Investor Sharks Northwest is proud to be able to offer this benefit to spark ideas in young minds.
The event will take place at the Kirkland Performance Center (event partner), with a reception from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. The pitches will begin at 7:00pm.
General Admission tickets are only $25 and include a reception featuring tables with information from our sponsors and access to the live show. The VIP package contains a private reception with appetizers and wine, exclusive opportunities to speak with the investors, and a personal swag bag valued at over $150.
Prizes: $2,500 will be awarded to the student group, made possible by Lee Johnson Auto Family, $2,500 will be awarded to the crowd favorite startup, made possible by Banner Bank.
