The Network Connect conducts a number of events during the year.
Investor Connection Events (ICE)
We conduct three ICE events where invited Business Opportunities meet Investors to review their products, services, executive summaries and funding objectives. Our service providers and business partners are invited as are local business people. Individuals from the financial, legal, and other professional categories attend as do members of regional and state government economic development groups. Invitations are sent to all business people in our database, which you can subscribe to here.
Reverse Elevator Pitch Panel events (REPP)
We conduct four REPP events where panels of investors speak to audiences of entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses about the decision process investors use when evaluating investment opportunities. These are interactive events allowing for audience participation.
All event schedules allow time for networking and making new personal and business connections. Light food is typically provided and either a beverage ticket or cash bar is available.
