First Impressions provides SVASE entrepreneurs with the opportunity to present to and receive formal structured feedback from prominent members of the entrepreneurial and venture funding communities. This is a great way to gain first hand experience on pitching for Venture Capital, make connections with VCs and Angels, and get a clear understanding on how to move your business forward.

"After making my presentation at First Impressions, I got five leads to investors, including three VCs that would have been very difficult, if not impossible, to obtain on my own. I've already set appointments with each of them for follow-on presentations." John Matthesen, CEO, Byte Blaze
