Startup Night is a monthly event for entrepreneurs to network and share their newest business ideas. At some point, every new business owner has to start “pitching” an audience, whether for securing funding, marketing their business, or gaining new customers. What better place to hone your skill than in a friendly and supportive atmosphere? We are all about growing the entrepreneurial community by providing a platform for promoting the next innovative idea.

Meet other entrepreneurs, investors and business enthusiasts who come together to network and watch demos of hot new local technologies, startups and businesses.

We will be gathering at the brand new business spaces of SVT Robotics and Troopster, located in the Ghent area of Norfolk to watch three local businesses/startups pitch their ideas in front of a live audience.

The Startup Night schedule goes like this:
6:00-6:20 Networking
6:25-6:30 Introductions, upcoming events, etc.
6:30-7:30 Presentations - three new pitches!
7:30 pm Continued Networking
8:00 pm Wrap-up

If you have an idea that you want to pitch, then let's talk about getting you on the schedule in the future!

PS If you are new to the area and want to learn more about the Hampton Roads entrepreneurial community, this is a great place to start. I first attended Startup Night two years ago, and ended up pitching my business idea the very next month. I never missed another event, and now I run the show!
