T-6.6
To all you HACKERS, HUSTLERS, & HIPSTERS: T-6.6 Pitch Night at MatchBOX is Thursday, January 18th at 7 pm The clock is counting down. You hear the fuel pumps working, steam hissing, metal groaning. At T-6.6 seconds, the main engines ignite, roaring with 7 tons of solid rocket fuel. A cloud of smoke errupts from the base of the rocket, the shuttle rocks and vibrates as engines heave to over 1 million pounds of thrust. The earth shakes, shock waves blast through the air - a sound so loud and low, you can’t think of anything else. The pounding in your chest - is it your heart? Or the engines about to send you hurtling into the sky? The space ship won’t leave earth for another few seconds, but there’s no going back now - it’s on its way to the atmosphere. The nerves astronauts must feel in this moment may not be all that different from what an entrepreneur feels the first time they pitch. The idea is lit, and while it hasn’t taken off quite yet, there’s no turning back now. At T-6.6 you’ll hear the news and most exciting startup pitches from local entrepreneurs, innovators, and friends of MatchBOX. Participate in the conversation and meet other venture enthusiasts. Featuring local startup pitches and conversations with experienced entrepreneurs. Our first pitch is from Provito, weprovito.com, a startup changing the way people look at housing. Instead of buying or renting as the only options, Provito's framework shares equity building with renters across a portfolio of properties. Our second pitch is from Artunity, https://www.artunity.co, a startup working to change the myth of the starving artist.

Come for the pizza and beer. Stay for the inspiration.
