We are hosting the Tufts Unpitch for Tufts entrepreneurs interested in connecting with investors and successful entrepreneurs. The event is not about delivering an elevator pitch onstage or a "demo day" presentation. Rather, the Tufts Unpitch is a chance for Tufts Entrepreneurs to sit down with angel investors and VCs in a casual, no-pressure environment to discuss your business and get feedback and connections that will help get your startups to the next stage.
Beer, Wine and food will be served at the Tufts UnPitch.
