Non-ticketed attendees will be turned away. Some is and isn'ts... H&H IS: - A place to meet like-minded entrepreneurs - A place to share startup ideas - A place to start forming business partnerships H&H ISN'T: - A run'o'the'mill networking event, come expecting to talk startups - A place for free food. While there will be pizza, that's just a fortunate side effect. - A place to share your current JOB and try to generate leads. Don't be that guy trying to get new business from startup guys. Just don't. We hope everyone coming can have these things in mind. We're hoping to help grow the startup economy in Las Vegas, and finding a good partner in crime for getting ish done is sometimes half the battle. Bring your startup ideas and your skill set, share them with friends and make stuff happen. So if you're ready to start building cool crap, we'll see you soon!

Pitch Practice

Work in Progress

Thinking about pitching your business to investors? Join us at Work in Progress to practice your pitching skills and start the process. WIP hosts quarterly Pitch Nights to allow a limited number of entrepreneurs to pitch to a panel of investors. Pitching at these events happens by invitation only, and most invitations are extended to entrepreneurs who come to Pitch Practice. A limited number of attendees will be allowed to practice their pitch for mentor and group feedback. Practicers will pitch to the group and receive feedback forms from audience member. After practice pitches are complete, our mentors will offer focused breakout workshops to help each pitcher with their specific needs. You're welcome to come and learn even if you're not planning to practice! When we divide into smaller sessions, you may choose the workshop you'd most like to attend. If you want to apply to practice your pitch, please submit a video that describes what you'd like to pitch in 3 minutes or less. Cell phone video is fine - we're looking for the people with the best potential to earn investment, not necessarily the people with the best video skills.
