The Lightning Rounds:
Your Chance to Have Everyone Hear Your Story!
Each Lightning Round will consist of up to ten (10) randomly selected participants who have elected to participate in a public embarrassment, er, public feedback. They will get 1 minute (timed) to do an Elevator Pitch with no slides and no supporting material, followed by 2 minutes of questions and feedback from the panel pitched to. For this event, we'll be running one separate Lightning Round after each panel - four total! YOU NEED TO SIGN UP SEPARATELY FOR THE LIGHTNING ROUNDS AFTER YOU CHECK INTO THE EVENT ON SITE! You cannot register for the lightning rounds in advance. Selection of lightning rounds are done 100% randomly using a spinning wheel live after each Panel!
Meet the Investors
Want an opportunity to chat 1:1 with investors in your area(s) of interest? We'll be running an informal meet-and-greet with the investors after each panel. Make sure to do your research beforehand on who you would like to talk to and approach them after their panel.
