NEF Showcase Presentation and Pitch Pit

Thursday, July 25 2019 at 5:00pm - 7:15pm

New Enterprise Forum invites anyone interested in entrepreneurship to join us at our monthly Forum to connect with entrepreneurs, investors, service providers and businesses.

Each month we showcase a team of entrepreneurs who are looking to raise capital. They have gone through extensive coaching with NEF’s experienced coaches and are eager to present their venture to the entrepreneurial community.

The Showcase gives the startup team the opportunity to practice presenting to investors and others in the Ann Arbor-Detroit entrepreneurial community. Each presentation is a reflection of NEF training on what to communicate and what not to do. The presenting entrepreneur gets feedback, insights and encouragement. Listeners also learn tips and techniques to sharpen their own pitches.

This month’s Showcase Presentation: eScapes Network
Robert A. Oklejas, President and Co-Founder. eScapes Network LLC is a Michigan company that has developed, patented, and produces Therapeutic Relaxation Television whose purpose is to provide anti-stress and anti-anxiety entertainment to both public and private networks. Our first private network product, Relaxation Dental TV has been endorsed by five state dental associations and is now enjoyed by nearly 600 dentists, their staff, and thousands of patients. These Private Television Networks are monetized by Verizon Media’s programmatic advertising platform.
