Please join us for our 7th Annual Peak Pitch event on Friday, March 1st where entrepreneurs get to pitch investors as they ride the chairlift together. The past six events were very successful and over 90 attendees joined us last year. We expect this year to be even better. Hunter Mountain (130 miles north of New York City) is very accessible from points around the state and New York City, providing ample opportunities to extend your network. Transportation will also be provided for attendees coming from New York City (details to come).
Please register ASAP so we can secure your lift ticket and include you in the list of participating companies. We encourage you to share this invitation with anyone who may be interested in attending.
The entire event – skiing and networking lunch – will be free thanks to our sponsors: Maloy Risk Services; Nixon Peabody; Parmele, McDermott, & Thomas; Phillips Lytle; Polachi; Reitler Kailas & Rosenblatt; Silicon Valley Bank; FundedBuy; Newmark Grubb Knight Frank; and Victory Park Securities.
In the past, we’ve had an overwhelming response from entrepreneurs interested in attending Peak Pitch. While we’d love to accommodate everyone, we may have to limit registrations if we exceed the number of spots that are available to us at Hunter Mountain. Registrants will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we will provide final confirmation at least two weeks before the event on March 1st. If you’d like to learn more about the event, please contact Tracy Baker at (518) 720-3090 or email@example.com.
