Through countless sleepless nights and cans of Red Bull, you've worked tirelessly on your product that's all set to change the world. You've got your first 50 users or maybe your first 1000, but you could do so much more...if you just had some funding.
To help you, General Assembly has assembled a panel of angels, early stage VC investors, and entrepreneurs that you can pitch to and get direct feedback on your start-up. They've been through the entire funding cycle and they're here to help you refine your pitch and maybe even get a dollar or two.
WANT TO PITCH? - MAY 23rd DEADLINE
If you're a interested in pitching, please send a quick 5 minute pitch with a description of the company to email@example.com. Preference will be given to companies with a prototype and user traction. May 23rd is the deadline, so get the pitches in before then! The earlier you apply, the better your chances.
Selected start-ups will also get a chance to get 1-on-1 pitching advice before the event from McAdory Lipscomb Jr., mentor and official pitch coach for NY Angels, IBM Smart Camp, ASTIA, UltraLights NYC and Entrepreneurs Roundtable Acceleratorso. The winner of the pitch event will also be given a chance to pitch direct to the NY Angels, one of the most active Angel Groups in the country.
