The SAGE Startup Client Selection Process

Selection Process

The selection process begins with your application. It will be reviewed by a member of SAGE’s Leadership Team. Following this review you’ll notified whether you meet the criteria or not. If your startup meets SAGE’s entry criteria, then a 1 on 1 discussion will be scheduled with a SAGE leader. They’ll ask you to bring your pitch deck and other relevant information.

If the reviewer believes that you’re SAGE ready, you’ll be scheduled to present your pitch deck to a group of 3-5 SAGE advisors. This screening follows the format of the presentation and Q&A in the Monthly SAGE meeting in Boulder and Fort Collins.

The Team Screen will determine SAGE readiness and assign a Readiness Coach, if appropriate, to assist you in preparing for the Monthly SAGE Presentation in Boulder or Fort Collins.
