New Enterprise Forum November Meeting: Showcase Presentation & Pitch

Thursday, November 21 2019 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 extensive coaching from our experienced coaches and these founders are eager to present their venture to the entrepreneurial community at this event. 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.

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.

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 | Gaining Early Traction: Go-To Market and First Revenue

In addition, we have a panel of experts who will guide you through the challenge every entrepreneur faces when ready to raise money. You need to show some traction–a pilot or at least one customer or some early adoption. For that you need to devise an effective Go-To-Market strategy and then demonstrate to investors how you intend to do it through a well thought out marketing and financial plans. GTM Strategy, marketing and sales plans, and financial plans – they all need to come together for an effective investor pitch.

We intend to invite an entrepreneur, an investor, a CEO who has done it and discuss all this at forum meeting. We want to know what works and what doesn’t, and share those insights with our audience. 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.
