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 2011. Each of our events has consistently drawn an excellent entrepreneur-to-investor ratio.

If you are an entrepreneur in a startup that is currently seeking capital, and would like to present your best 90-second elevator pitch to a panel of VCs, you must first send an email.

Request to Present in advance before you register to receive confirmation from the program manager space is available on the line up. The maximum number of presenters is limited to ten. If you do not want to pitch or there is no slot available to pitch, feel free to attend as a non-pitching entrepreneur who listens to other entrepreneurs and learns from their experiences.

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, entrepreneurs on the list 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! After the 90 second pitch there will be five minutes of Q&A by the panel followed by two minutes of critique.

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