    This is The Venture Forum’s 9
    th Annual 5 Minute Pitch Contest that has been so incredibly powerful in getting startups the outlet that they need to launch their business to the next level.

    On April 14
    th we will have 10 of New England’s finest pitching for you, the audience, and our team of 5 keen judges. In addition, the room will have approximately 20 other businesses presenting their ideas. With food, wine, coffee, and dessert, the atmosphere couldn’t be better.

    Setup for the evening will begin around 4:30 with networking and food available beginning at 5 PM. At 6 PM the fun will start and our pitchers will get under way. They will have five minutes to tell their story and three minutes to answer judge questions, all in an effort to convince you and the judges why their idea is the next great business.
