The DC chapter of the Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network is kicking off its 2016-2017 PITCH-SURGE-LAUNCH contest cycle with PITCH 2016, its annual business pitch contest.
If you have a new venture getting off the ground or an idea whose time has come, this is your chance. Or if you someone who does, pass the word! The contest focuses on developing specific skills and brings together a network of resources, including mentorship from venture capitalists, serial entrepreneurs, corporate executives and legal experts.
The payoff... Every contestant will receive feedback from our panel of judges and a six month membership to DEN DC (including access to its services, seminars, and events). And the winner will walk away with $500, advisory and development support from a customized team of DEN DC experts, and an automatic entry into the spring business plan contest. The winner of the spring event goes to Hanover, NH in May to vie for the national title and the $50,000 grand prize.
The location... The workspaces of 1776, a global incubator and seed fund helping startups transform industries. The folks at 1776 know that startups can change the world and they’re building a global community to provide the intellectual, social, and financial capital to help them make that a reality. Their address is 1133 15th S. NW, 12th Floor, Washington DC 20005.
