Event description
Five companies will pitch to a panel of three investors. This will be followed by a meet and greet social in breakout rooms.

About this Event

Watch five companies make pitches to a panel of three investors and hear the feedback they get. Immediately following there will be a social for everyone to meet in small group breakout rooms. The event will also be livestreamed on the MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest Facebook home page. The purpose of the program is to have entrepreneurs learn by example what it is like to pitch to investors and hear the types of things they look for in companies. Companies will not be using this event to raise money but instead to get practical experience for when they get a chance to present to investors.

The cost is $10 to be in the Zoom room and take part in the social. You must register here with your email to be able to get the Zoom invite to the program. The Zoom invitations will be sent out starting November 17.
