    Event Description

    Join us for a Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network event about business plans. During this conversation, we’ll introduce the DEN and what it has to offer, learn about different ways to structure and present a business plan, and have a conversation with a corporate strategist, followed by an open working session where you can get feedback and help on whatever you’re working on!

    We’ll also share details about the annual Pitch Competition in Hanover, NH, and opportunities for you to qualify and participate.

You can also receive advice and support from the DEN DC community, whether for your venture, for your current role at a startup, or for a career change.
