NEF Online Forum – Showcase Presentation, Pitch Pit and Fireside Chat

Thursday, May 21 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 being virtual in presenting their ideas and business plans. We will showcase an outstanding team of entrepreneurs looking to raise capital for their venture. Having gone through extensive coaching, these founders are eager to pitch their business ideas to a panel of investor judges and the entrepreneurial community in a “Shark Tank” format.

This event gives the start-up team an opportunity to practice their investor pitch in front of Detroit Area entrepreneurial community.  Each presentation will reflect NEF training on what is important to communicate and what not to do. 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.

Our forum will also feature a Fireside Chat with Professor David Brophy, Director of the Center for Venture Capital and Private Equity Finance. Dr. Brophy will chat about challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurs in these unusual times and provide insights on strategies to adopt as we all look forward to recovery.

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