NEF Forum – Online Showcase Presentation and Pitch Pit

Thursday, October 15 2020 at 4:00pm - 5:30pm

New Enterprise Forum invites anyone interested in entrepreneurship to join us for an online Forum Meeting.

During this unprecedented time, we want to continue to support our entrepreneurs and give them a chance to connect with the entrepreneurial community, even if it means going virtual in presenting their ideas and business plans.

We showcase an outstanding team of entrepreneurs who are looking to raise capital for their venture. They have gone through an extensive coaching from our experienced coaches and these founders are eager to present their venture to the entrepreneurial community at this event.

Join us at this online meeting to ask questions, keep pace with local entrepreneurs, and connect with people who support the local start-up community.

Showcase Presentation


Randy Kuckuck is co-inventor of the ZoomBroom and CEO of Aceleon, the company which is developing the ZoomBroom.  ZoomBroom makes cleaning off your deck, patio, sidewalks, and steps a breeze. Its slim, lightweight design makes it easy to store in a convenient location in your home, so it is always handy and ready to tackle these cleaning challenges. Leaf blowers are great for clearing leaves off your yard in the fall, but the ZoomBroom is designed for more common, everyday tasks around the house.

Pitch Pit
