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!
The Venture Fair
Want an opportunity to chat 1:1 with investors in your area of interest? We'll be running a venture fair with our attending investors, who will have dedicated areas, where they will meet with you. To avoid chaos, you will sign up for up to two (2) spots with VCs of your choice at specific time spots. You will have four (4) minutes to interact with each VC of choice. You can meet with additional VCs if they elect to stay past the Venture Fair time and have met with all the firms they have been assigned to.
