New Enterprise Forum | January Showcase Presentation & Pitch

Thursday, January 16 2020 at 5:00pm - 7:30pm

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 Presentation

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.

This event gives the start-up the opportunity to practice presenting to investors and others interested in the 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.

Join us at this meeting to ask questions, keep pace with local entrepreneurs, and connect with people who support the local start-up community. Judges will select the best presenter who will be awarded a cash prize!

Connect to My Attorney – Peter J. Staver, CEO and Founder.

Connect To My Attorney (CTMA) is a platform designed to connect lawyers with prospective clients in real-time. Clients can easily search for a lawyer in their area and immediately connect with an attorney via voice or video chat, and only pay for the time spent with the lawyer. Lawyers can use CTMA to attract new clients and earn revenue during their downtime.

Pitch Pit

Four entrepreneurs will each give a four-minute pitch of their business idea to a panel of investor judges in a “Shark Tank” format. Prototypes and visual aids are encouraged but no Power Point presentations. After each pitch, the judges will give detailed feedback and score the business. At the end of the evening, the person with the highest score will receive a $100 cash prize plus all additional prize money provided by the audience.
