About the Competition
Join us for an entire day of Pitching Competition in Camden NJ. On October 14, 2017, Waterfront Ventures is hosting Camden Catalyst, a Startup Pitch Competition with a prize pool of $25,000. The competition is open to ALL startups and students in Camden and all neighboring areas.
Coming up with an idea for your startup is easy, building a team to get things going is hard, finding initial capital to kickstart your idea is often challenging. That’s why we created Camden Catalyst — a Pitch Competition with the goal of helping students and young startups succeed.
