Angel Elevator Pitch
February 16, 2012 | 6:00-8:30 PM | Two Palo Alto Square | Palo Alto
Event Sponsor: Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP

Angel Elevator Pitch is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with Angels and other CXOs, to present their company and ideas, and learn first-hand how to raise early-stage capital in today's market.

If you are an entrepreneur in a startup that is currently seeking capital and would like to present your best two minute elevator pitch to a panel of Angels, you must register in advance and have confirmation from the program manager that you are on the list of presenters. The maximum number of presenters is ten.

Entrepreneurs not yet ready to pitch, or if there is no slot available, are encouraged to register and attend.  By listening to the pitches, the Q&A, and the critiques you will learn key points to develop an effective pitch.

If you are an investor, come and listen to the entrepreneurs' pitches—you never know where you'll find your next deal. Find out how our panel of investors rate the entrepreneurs' pitches; which Angels pass and for what reasons; and which entrepreneurs other Angels want to talk to ASAP.

Please contact us if you would like to participate on one of our Pitch or Workshop panels.

During the evening, entrepreneurs on our Pitch List will present their pitches to the entire room. Our panel of early stage investors will ask questions and provide brief feedback. Please note that pitching time limits will be strictly enforced!  After the two minute pitch, there will be four minutes of Q&A by the panel, followed by one minute of non-rebuttal feedback from each panelist.

Our lively panel discussion and Q&A will also provide critical insight into what it takes to raise capital today.

Moderator: Max Shapiro, PeopleConnect

Panelists:
Paul Twombly, Keiretsu Forum
J.C. Sarner, Angels Forum
Chris Crump, Sand Hill Angels
Tom Cervantez, Harvard Angels

To present a pitch you must contact Valerie Badgett at ensetventures@gmail.com (Direct Phone: 415.987.1707) prior to registering to learn of slot availability.  The ten presentation slots are assigned on a first-come basis.  If a slot is available you MUST register immediately and email Valerie your confirmation number and the name of your company. Once you are approved you will receive additional guidelines. Send your request early, pitching slots go quickly.

Registering alone does NOT reserve pitch time. Emailing your confirmation number is the ONLY way to ensure assignment of a presentation slot.
