The Elevator Pitch RoundtablePLUS is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with Investors and other CXOs, present their company and ideas, receive valuable communication tips, and learn first-hand how to raise early-stage capital in today's market. As a special bonus, during a 5:00-6:00pm pre-session, all registrants are invited to meet as a group with a Pillsbury Law Partner to discuss pragmatic business legal matters relevant to entrepreneurs (e.g., organizing the tech start-up & stock options, the funding process & legal issues, IP, financing & structuring alliances, and considerations for M&A or going public). As this event will target both experienced entrepreneurs/ industry professionals AND entrepreneurially-minded faculty, researchers, PostDocs, PhDs, MBAs, it is an excellent way to learn emerging ideas from the best-and-brightest university affiliates.
Potential PRESENTERS will need to fill out the PRESENTERS' Survey you will see during registration. All registrants may attend the pre-pitch event from 5-6pm. PRESENTERS selected to pitch will be informed during the pre-pitch session; due to time constraints only the top 8 pitchers will be selected.
During the evening, entrepreneurs on the list will present their pitches to the entire room. Our panel of early stage investors will ask questions and provide brief feedback. Please note that pitching time limits will be strictly enforced! After the two minute pitch, there will be five minutes of Q&A by the panel, followed by two minutes of non-rebuttal critique.
Our lively panel discussion and Q&A will also provide critical insight into what it takes to raise capital today.
