Here's your chance to sign up for VIP Pitch Coaching with
Speaker Erik Swanson, an International Keynote Speaker and Best Selling Author!
before Boston ENET's Annual Open Mic and Pitch Night!
Erik will also sign copies of two of his seven published books:
Social Millions, for the contestants who will be pitching, and
Secret Habitude Warriors, for all of the event's attendees!
After your VIP Pitch Coaching session, join Boston ENET's Annual Open Mic and Pitch Night "Pitch Your Startup to Mentors and Investors!" to see founders of selected startups give their startup pitch and watch first-hand the invaluable feedback from the expert panel of mentors and investors, all while supporting fellow entrepreneurs!
At the annual Open Mic and Pitch Night, founders will give their startup pitch to a panel of mentors and investors, giving those entrepreneurs an opportunity to practice their presentation skills in front of an unknown audience, get feedback from the panel of experts, and network with like-minded entrepreneurs and members of the Boston ENET community. There is ample time to network over pizza and beverages before and after the pitches. Perfecting that pitch just might come in handy as you never know who you may meet in an elevator for 15 seconds or while grabbing that cup of Joe in the coffee shop! This event will be held right in the heart Cambridge's innovation hub, Kendall Square, at Pivotal Labs.
A prize will be awarded to the winner in each of the following two categories: 1) Audience Favorite, by applause from the audience, and 2) The Judge's Favorite, by vote from the panel of judges.
Before the pitching starts, each of the judges will share tips about what makes a great startup pitch, founders of 10 startups will give their startup pitch, and then prizes will be awarded. Since one of the prizes is the Audience Favorite, your presence and vote is needed!
Panel of Judges
The panel of judges are from the entrepreneurial community of mentors, investors (including early-stage investors), and entrepreneurs whose startup ventures are scaling, have exited, and, in at least one case, launching their next venture!
