The series of “BullPen” pitch events (similar in concept to “Shark Tank”) is where a select handful of (3-4) tech startup companies pitch their business plans to a panel of investors and mixed audience.
Each presenting team is screened, mentored and prepared to make a 10 minute Investor type presentation to a panel of 4 Investors and successful Entrepreneurs.
The audience is encouraged to participate in the 7 minute Q & A session. Afterwards, the Investor panel will have 7 minutes to provide constructive feedback.
BullPen is aimed at serious early stage tech startup companies with high growth potential, an experienced team, a demonstrated Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and at least one potential customer who is prepared to pay for your product.
