Description

Join us for a fundraising event with Charlie O’Donnell as we delve into the details of real-life founder successes and failures. Learn the lessons even the most experienced founders had to come by the hard way and hear actionable advice for sidestepping these common pitfalls.

Then, pitch Charlie on your venture during our “Not-A-Pitch” pitches. Whether just an idea, prototype, or fully developed product, Charlie will provide feedback on what to think about next.

Come, Learn, Pitch, Network, Eat, Drink, & Give Back!


Hosted by Gust Launch. All proceeds will benefit Tech Takes Action and Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse.
