Pitch It In Person
Lori Smith, partner in the Private Equity and Venture Capital group, serves as a judge for "Pitch It In Person" on Tuesday, April 22. Four marketing and communications tech start-ups give a panel of judges their best pitch for a chance to win funding. In addition, the event features a keynote presentation by Steve Rubel, Chief Content Strategist for Edelman, one of the most respected and followed thought leaders on how technology impacts communications.
In 2013, the Business Development Institute partnered with EFactor, the world's largest niche social network for entrepreneurs, to produce the first "Pitch It In Person." Over 150 entrepreneurs, investors and business professionals attended the sold-out event that featured five tech start-up founders competing for cash and the tutelage of a panel of venture capitalists.
