Pitching companies can provide a short, no more than 3 pages of power point, which we will display on a screen.  There will be a panel of successful entrepreneurs and investors who will be a sort of “Boca Shark Tank” that will be at the event.  This panel will have a few moments to ask a few questions following each pitch.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY REQUIREMENT: We are requiring participants fill out a 2 page executive summary.  The reason we are requiring this, is a group of investors who would like to review what companies are pitching and the potential opportunity before the event.  This is required.  So if you are interested in pitching please email me at and I can send you this document to fill out.   Start-ups who are pitching also can send us up to 4 power point slides or a link to a demo site.
The start-up companies pitching have up to 3 minutes to answer 5 common questions about their business:
What is their product/service?
What is their business model?
Size of the Market they serve?
How do they get to market or get traction?
What are they here looking for? Capital, Partners, Advisers, etc..
Potential Advisers, Mentors and Audience members will be asked to approach start-ups of interest after the event.  We will list the companies which will pitch as we approach the pitch date.
