Are You Serious?

  • This location is shown only to members

The Hatchery opens its doors to a fast paced New York style pitch event.

Hatchery style honesty. In ways others may be too polite to share. It's what you need to hear about your startup, covering marketing, finance, technology, business, presentation, and more. 



What's the point?

1. Pitching practice
2. Honest feedback about your company

How it works:

1. RSVP to attend

2. We accept pitches on a rolling basis and select five companies to pitch at each AYS event. We strongly advise that you attend an event prior to submitting your pitch

3. If you would like to pitch, send materials in advance to: [masked]
- we need PowerPoint and executive summary
- deadline is 1 week before the event
- file naming: company name (1 word), underscore, deck or summary
ex. hatchery_deck.ppt, hatchery_summary.doc
- put both documents in 1 email, do not send separately

4. We will not wait for the guests to arrive. Doors open at 6pm. The event begins  at 6:30pm and ends at 8:30pm.

5. It will be FAST!

6. There is no Q&A. We can talk after the event.

5 minute entrepreneur pitch
5 minute panel critique

The Powerpoint:
Please address all of these eleven points in your slides:
1. your team
2. what your product/service does
3. what issue/pain is it looking to solve/address

5. what is the addressable market
6. what is the competitive landscape
7. any current customer/client/pilot pipeline
8. what is the revenue stream/source
9. what are your financial projections
10. how much are you looking for in investment

Entrepreneurs who take this seriously will absolutely benefit.

    How about this one for an IPO?

    True Life Stories (TM) sells government secrets to Hollywood. The company is a filtering partnership between Hollywood, armed forces, government, and intelligence agencies to make movies/films, books, TV shows with sensitivity to national security concerns. It provides a retirement for some who are held to secrecy.

    An IPO is under consideration by management with a potential stock symbol of CIH.

    Two movies are cleared for production:
    1. True Love Story
    2. True Horror Story

    True Life Stories (TM) is currently looking for a VP of Communications.
