The November Deal Forum
This Deal Forum is one of our Cooperative Venturing live pitch events and will feature entrepreneurs who are seeking capital for their ventures. This event is designed specifically to provide a safe venue where entrepreneurs can pitch their ventures to a panel of investors for the sole purpose of receiving feedback on their venture, pitch content, as well as market opportunity assumptions, forecasts, or necessary milestones needed to become successful.
This is the essence of commercialization.
The presenters are paired with a Cooperative Venturing Team, hand selected from VentureCapital.org Cooperative Venturing Network®, to work with in preparation for this live pitch event. They will pitch to our Investor Panelists made up of active investors from Utah and Idaho's Angel and Venture Capital community. After each 10 minute pitch, each member of the Investor Panel will provide their industry insights and personal feedback to the Company Presenter.
After the presentation and feedback session, investors, entrepreneurs, presenters, and all other attendees will enjoy networking and light refreshments. Please plan on joining us as you don't want to miss this great networking opportunity to begin building relations in the venturing community!
