Description

***FOUNDERS LIVE IN CHICAGO***

Bottega8 is partnering with Founders Live for an entertaining happy hour competition sweeping the country where up to five handpicked companies take the hot seat, with only 99 seconds to pitch their company and describe their value proposition in front of an audience. After the pitches and audience Q&A, the crowd will vote for a winner who will not only receive an award, but recognition from the crowd and also the opportunity to talk more about their product or service. So bring your friends and coworkers, grab some food and drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs and vote for what you think will be the next big thing...built in Chicago.
