Description

New Enterprise Forum invites anyone interested in entrepreneurship to join us at our monthly Forum to connect with entrepreneurs, investors, service providers and businesses.

2019 GAMIC Winner Presentations

This month we are presenting two winners from the 2019 Global Automotive Mobility Innovation Competition held at Cobo Center during SAE WCX'19 in April 2019. Several NEF coaches volunteered their time to coach GAMIC semifinalists and finalists during the competition year from Nov 2018 to April 2019.

These founders are eager to present their venture to the entrepreneurial community at this event. They would greatly appreciate your feedback, insights and encouragement. You will also learn a few tips and techniques in sharpening your own pitch for your venture. This event gives the start-up the opportunity to practice presenting to investors and others interested in the Detroit Area entrepreneurial community.

Join us at this meeting to ask questions, keep pace with local entrepreneurs, and connect with people who support the local start-up community.

PANEL DISCUSSION: Gaining Early Traction - Go To Market and First Revenue

In addition, we have a panel of experts who will guide you through the challenge every entrepreneur faces when ready to raise money. You need to show some traction - a pilot or at least one customer or some early adoption. For that you need to devise an effective Go-To-Market strategy and then demonstrate to investors how you intend to do it through a well thought out marketing and financial plans. GTM Strategy, marketing and sales plans, and financial plans - they all need to come together for an effective investor pitch.

We intend to invite an entrepreneur, an investor, a CEO who has done it and discuss all this at forum meeting. We want to know what works and what doesn't, and share those insights with our audience. We hope that this will be of greater interest and value to founders and it will be a dynamic discussion between investors, founders and the audience.

Agenda:

Mark your calendar. The meeting opens at 5:00 pm with networking and appetizers. Around 5:45 pm, the program portion of the meeting begins with an introduction from our President including upcoming entrepreneurial events and past NEF Showcase Presenter news. The program continues with our featured Showcase Presenter(s) who are graduates of the NEF coaching process. Depending on the month or otherwise noted, the program includes the engaging NEF Pitch Pit or intriguing topic and panel. The program typically finishes at 7:15 pm with more networking afterwards. Please feel welcome to join us.

The event is FREE. Registration is not required but recommended for planning purposes.
