Funding Universe hosts Portland CrowdPitch at NedSpace Old Town, tomorrow
Pitching makes perfect. Or practicing pitching makes perfect. Or pitching perfectly… Um. Whatever the case, if you’re a startup you can always use more practice pitching. And there’s no better place to practice that pitch than in front of a crowd—or being part of the crowd watching someone else pitch.
That’s why I think you should swing by NedSpace Old Town tomorrow at lunch for the Funding Universe Portland CrowdPitch.
What’s CrowdPitch, you ask?
Think ´America Idol´ — selected entrepreneurs will have 4 minutes to pitch their company to both a panel of experts & a live audience, followed immediately by a 3-minute Q&A session with the panel.
People pitch, the crowd critiques, and hopefully, if all goes well, a winner walks away with a prize package of services.
Whoa whoa whoa. Hold your horses. I’m getting to your “What services?” question. Services like legal services from StoelRives, consulting from SEO.com, financial services from NOWAdvisors, phone service from Jive Communications (no, not THAT Jive), a press release on Newswire, six months of free office space from NedSpace, and startup services from Funding Universe.
Sound interesting? Well, get on over to NedSpace Old Town, Wednesday at 11:30 and see who’s pitching what and how well they’re pitching you.
