What happens when investors, startup founders, entrepreneurs, and industry professionals get together at a nice venue with great drinks and food?
This event is about raising money for your startup or offline business.
The fun starts when you arrive... grab a beer or wine and some munchies... and get busy making connections.
BIG FUN begins with the Elevator Pitch Competition!
Startup and business founders will be selected to pitch in three categories:
• Tech Startups... ideation, pre-seed, or seed stage
• Brick & Mortar... you may have a website but your business model (product or service) is offline
• Non-BK Startups... important to show some love for our Brooklyn-deprived neighbors across the river
Prizes... currently over $3,500 in startup consulting and in-kind products & services... with more coming!
The Challenge... no projector, no slides, no deck. Present your startup using words alone to create mental images that make lasting impressions. You have up to 90 seconds... it's an elevator pitch!
Rules & Regs:
• founder or at least one co-founder must reside or work in Brooklyn
• non-Brooklyn startups must be located in NYC
• unfunded, funded, and idea-stage projects are welcome
• there is no application fee to pitch!
• deadline to apply is Thursday, May 8th at 5:00pm - http://bit.ly/QrHCzN
This will be a Brooklyn throw-down blast!
Big-picture goal of event is that by the end of the evening everyone will have follow-ups scheduled with investors, other attendees, and industry professionals so that real connections are forged.
