About the Forum
Our monthly forum provides an evening of learning, sharing experiences, and making essential business contacts. Features of our forum include:
- Showcase presenters present potential new investment opportunities
- Panels discussing issues pertinent to entrepreneurs and investors in start up companies
- Pitch Pit competition where rookies present their ideas for a cash prize
- Open Mic where all meeting attendees introduce themselves and their business needs
The meeting opens at 5:00 pm with networking and appetizers. Around 5:45 pm, the program portion of the meeting begins with an introduction from our President including upcoming entrepreneurial events and past NEF Showcase Presenter news. The program continues with our featured Showcase Presenter(s) who are graduates of the NEF coaching process. Depending on the month or otherwise noted, the program includes the engaging NEF Pitch Pit or intriguing Topic and Panel. The program typically finishes at 7:15 pm with more networking afterwards.
