New Enterprise Forum is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our first forum event of the year on January 18, 2024. The live portion kicks off at 5:00 p.m. at Ann Arbor SPARK with food, drink and networking. Online webinar coverage will begin at 5:45 p.m..
We will have a showcase investor presentation from Betsy Ehrenberg, Founder and Chair of AutoVault, after her completion of the NEF coaching process. AutoVault is a one-stop-shop and AI-driven mobile application that connects car dealers to drivers after they drive away from the dealership.
We will also have a pitch pit competition among three early-stage entrepreneurs. They will each give a four-minute pitch of their business idea in front of three stellar judges, followed by questions and answers, with the winner receiving a prize of a NEF Business Readiness Assessment.
The judges will be Chris Hart, CEO and Co-Founder of gBeat.com; Marlo Rencher, PhD, CDE, President of Detroit Means Business and Co-Founder of Commune Angels; and Jim Tenzillo, President of New Ventures Consulting. The competitors will be Jordan Craven, CEO and Co-Founder of Sizeologic; Saamer Mansoor, Founder of BeAware; and Ryan Mills, Co-Founder of ScrapTrader.
