The VC Taskforce Elevator Pitch Roundtable is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with investors and other CXOs, present their company and idea, and hear first-hand what it takes to raise early-stage capital in 2008. Each of our events has consistently drawn an excellent entrepreneur-to-investor ratio.

If you are an entrepreneur in a startup and currently seeking capital, come prepared with your best 90-second elevator pitch.

If you are an investor come and listen to entrepreneurs' pitches. You never know where you'll find your next deal. Find out how our 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 Elevator Pitch Roundtable or Workshop panels.

During the evening, a select number of entrepreneurs will present their pitches to the entire room. Our distinguished panel of early stage investors will ask questions and provide brief feedback. Please note that pitching time limits will be strictly enforced!

Our lively panel discussion and Q&A will also provide critical insight into what it takes to raise capital today.
