The Startup Station, an education and consulting company specializing in modeling and valuing early-stage ventures, and Astra Global, a global business development company specializing in startup funding connecting high potential startups of different stages with global leading VCs, are launchingbrand new Investor Matching Program.

To date, our startups have raised in excess of $50M in capital and we have access to 5000+ investors. Check out our past events!

Typical investor networking events and pitch competitions are similar to blind dates - you never know what you are going to get. Investors don't know enough about the startup founders and startup founders don't know if investors they are meeting are the right fit for their business.

You also rarely get the necessary support to be able to present your company in the best light, especially from the financial point of view, and have the maximum chances of success. As a result, most events and competitions are used to practice pitches rather than to make valuable connections and close financing.

Investor Matching Program is uniquely designed to only give you access to the investors already interested in your startup. Further, to be in the best position to present and close the deal, you will also go through a preparatory program before the investor meetings to address any weaknesses in your pitch and financials.

How it works
Phase I "Power round with 200 Investors"
You can only participate in the Power Round, if you agree to the entire cost of the program. Eligibility for this round: any tech startup raising Seed, Series A, or Series B round.
Step 01
You submit a 2-min video pitch. Once you register for Phase I, we will send you an example of a successful video pitch from our past contestants as well as a presentation with detailed instruction of how the video should be structured
Step 02
We review your video and send you detailed feedback. Our focus will be on making sure you address all points required by our investors for startup evaluation.
Step 03
You can resubmit your video, if you choose. First resubmition is free, if all instructions are followed. Every additional resubmission, or resubmission due to failure to follow the instructions, is $25.
Step 4
We send your video pitch to 200+ investors investing in your industry and stage and they will vote whether or not they are interested.
Step 5
If you get at least five votes, you advance to the next stage. If you get less than five votes, you get intros to the investors who expressed interest and are eligible to participate in Phase II to refine your pitch and financials.
We reserve the right not to send your final video pitch, if it does not meet our minimum quality standards, as our investors expect a certain level of quality from us and/or if you don't follow our submission instructions
How it works
