Come watch some aspiring Rochesterian entrepreneurs pitch their hearts out at our first ever PITCH! Night at NextCorps, in partnership with Valley 2 Valley and StartupGrind Rochester. We have preselected a few teams based in Rochester, NY to showcase their ideas and companies to some amazing ecosystem builders and investors. This event is not only for the participants of the pitch but for those in the crowd to showcase their pitching skills. That's why we have a few tricks up our sleeves and some fun prizes to handout. This is an event you should not miss!
Pitching teams must present to our judges in 5min or less, plus a 3 minute Q&A. All teams will be judged on being concise, complete, and compelling. Attendance is free but the experience is priceless. If you'd like to watch, and possibly find a founder, co-founder, or team member, just register.
