Showcase & Pitch Pit

Thursday, 18 March 2021 - 4:00pm


New Enterprise Forum invites anyone interested in entrepreneurship to join us for an ONLINE Forum Meeting.  Join us  to ask questions, keep pace with local entrepreneurs, and connect with people who support the local start-up community.

Showcase Presentation

An entrepreneur who has has perfected a ten minute investor pitch with the help of NEF coaches will present their company and take questions from the audience.

Pitch Pit

This month, selected entrepreneurs will each give a four-minute pitch of their business idea to a panel of investor judges in a “Shark Tank” format. Prototypes and visual aids are encouraged but no Power Point presentations. After each pitch, the judges will give detailed feedback and score the business. At the end of the evening, the person with the highest score will receive a $250 cash prize.


At the conclusion of the Pit Pitch, stick around and network with your fellow attendees over ZOOM. We will break out into smaller groups so that you can "virtually" rub elbows with the movers and shakers of Ann Arbor's entrepreneurial ecosystem.
