The Elevator Pitch Roundtable
Focus: Consumer Internet and Web 2.0 Entrepreneurs
Investors & Entrepreneurs Only
Event Sponsor: DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary US LLP
If you are an entrepreneur in a startup and currently seeking capital, come prepared with your best one-minute elevator pitch.
In a few succinct sentences, be able to tell:
Who you are and what you do
What problem or opportunity you solve and why you are the one to solve it
How much you are looking to raise and what it will be used for
If you are an investor come and listen to entrepreneurs' pitches. You never know where you'll find your next deal. Find out how the current panel of investors rate the entrepreneurs' pitches. Which VCs pass and for what reasons and which entrepreneurs other VCs want to talk to ASAP. Please let us know if you would like to participate on one of our panels.
We will go around the room and allow select entrepreneurs to present their pitch. Time limits will be strictly enforced! Immediately following each pitch, our distinguished panel will provide brief feedback. Our panel includes:
* Maureen Dorney, Partner, DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary US LLP
* Matthew Fix, Investment Manager, Intel Capital
* Mark Mennell, Partner, Rustic Canyon Ventures
* David Stern, Venture Partner, Clearstone Venture Partners
* And additional investor panelists to be confirmed.
Previous panelists have included investors from Vantage Point Venture Partners, LeapFrog Ventures, BlueRun Ventures, Intel Capital, Cardinal Venture Capital, Apax Partners, Levensohn Venture Partners, Keiretsu Forum, and many others.
The event is moderated by Nathan Beckord and Susan Boedy of VentureArchetypes.
Finally, we will provide time for additional networking and the exchange of business cards and executive summaries over pizza and soft drinks.
$35. On-site registration is an additional $10 (if space is available).
