The entrepreneur network Endeavor is partnering with Microsoft for Startups, the Miami Herald, and the city of Miami for its second pitch competition for Black startup founders.
A total of 10 companies will be selected to compete for cash prizes of $25,000 (1st place), $15,000 (2nd place) and $10,000 (3rd place), as well as access to Microsoft for Startups program including $25,000 in Azure credits and technical consulting sessions.
To apply, Black founders must have an early-stage company with less than $200,000 in revenues but with a product already launched. The competition is industry-agnostic, and the company must be based in the Miami area.
