The Austin Startup Fast Pitch winner will receive a six month membership into the ATI portfolio, whose members and graduates have raised over $500M over the past seven years years - and through 18 exists they have already returned over $500M to investors. Additionally, the winner can accompany ATI on its next "investment road show" to the west coast.
