New Enterprise Forum invites anyone interested in entrepreneurship to join us at our monthly Forum to connect with entrepreneurs, investors, service providers and businesses.
Showcase Presentations by 2018 GAMIC Winners
At this month’s Forum, we are showcasing 2018 Global Automotive Mobility Innovation Competition (GAMIC) winners at our November forum. NEF has been a long-term supporter of GAMIC and NEF coaches have provided guidance to these teams during semi-finals and finals this year.
The four winners won the first place in each category at the 2018 Society of Automotive Engineers World Congress (SAE-WCX). Metro-Detroit and Ann Arbor have become Centers for Mobility innovation and many innovators and entrepreneurs are engaged in bringing their technologies to the industry.
These founders are eager to present their venture to the entrepreneurial community at this event.
This event gives the start-ups the opportunity to practice presenting to investors and others interested in the Detroit Area entrepreneurial community. 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.
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: Marketing Dollars and Sense?
In addition, we have a panel of experts who will guide you through importance of marketing budgets and plans.
Have you ever wondered what how much to budget for marketing in your financial plans? What makes sense? Our experienced panel will ‘tell all’ the ins and outs of marketing challenges and opportunities for startups during the early stages of customer acquisition and growth.
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.
We have an outstanding panel of investors and entrepreneurs.
