The core mission of New Enterprise Forum is to coach startups, help perfect their investor pitches and connect entrepreneurs with investors. Our hallmark offering is our showcase presentation pitch coaching, but we also have other tools and activities, including expert panel discussions, pitch pit competitions, business readiness assessments and pitch tune-ups. We are comprised of a team of all-volunteer business professionals with a passion for helping entrepreneurs succeed.
The NEF Program Committee is our coaching pool of professional expertise. Coaching teams are created from this group where the entrepreneur experiences our team-based presentation process through individualized and custom coaching. They are mentored by a senior NEF Board of Director member who keeps the team on track in coaching the entrepreneur to prepare a winning “pitch” culminating in a showcase presentation at a forum meeting. Coaches learn from one another and become experienced business coaches. It is a win-win benefit!
