Piranha Pond is a "pitch party" where entrepreneurs have up to 5 minutes to convince a panel of investors to meet with them to further discuss their ventures. Using a format similar to the popular television show Shark Tank, our investors provide feedback to the entrepreneurs about their presentations and companies, and information why they decide to be "In" or "Out." If they are "In" they will meet with the Entrepreneur at a later time to discuss their company. Whereas, if they are "Out" there is no interest at this time, and the investor lets us know why s/he will not move forward with the presenter.
For this event, we seek companies beyond the idea stage. The ideal company will have raised funds from friends, family, and/or grants such as SBIR's. If the company's product is a software or SAAS product, it should be in beta testing or later.
This is a FREE event to the public, but you must RSVP in advance, so that we can properly set up the facility and order enough food for everyone.
