November doesn’t seem to boast much sunshine, but it is definitively the month for you discover that there is much more to learn about energy and power units than you would ever expect. Guess what? Big Launch Challenge is on its way and will convene 10 pitch makers on November 7.
We are happy to be selected to take part in this event and we are one of 10 finalists to present our business plan. This competition provides startups with valuable business networking and investment opportunities where two will walk away with checks totaling $20,000.
These finalists will be given twelve minutes to present their business plans to a panel of judges and will then go through a short question and answer block. The pitch makers must follow a certain set of guidelines for the pitches. The pitches are not to last more than 12 minutes and will be followed by an eight-minute Q&A session from the panel of judges. The presentation formats range from powerpoint presentations to real products and posters.
This is the second time this challenge has been hosted. The event is free to the public and in case you are one of the pitch makers, we even urge you to bring in your family and friends to witness the great job you are doing. The event will be hosted at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR) located at 150 Slayton Ave., Danville, VA. The event will be live-streamed.
Paul Singh, an entrepreneur, speaker and investor will be visiting with Danville’s entrepreneurs, educational institutions, government leaders, economic development organizations, and established businesses, during a three-day conference on November 6-8, 2018.
The Launch Place strives to foster an environment for new and serial entrepreneurs to raise capital and garner the support system needed to take their products and/or solutions into the marketplace.
