We have put together an all-star panel of local founders who have raised over $1,000,000 for their companies. You’ll get a first hand look at what it takes to create a company that not only appeals to investors, but succeeds at generating profits and users.


The all-star panel includes: the CEO of “Presence”, the CEO of “PikMyKid”, and the CEO of “PeerFit”. We are looking forward to a great event that is sure to educate and engage.
