PitchBreakfast – Where Entrepreneurs Pitch & Panelists Enrich.
PitchBreakfast gives startups an opportunity to practice their investor pitch in a safe and supportive environment. Four companies will each pitch for 5 minutes followed by 10 minutes of Q&A and feedback from our expert panel.
Audience members will find value in hearing how other startups pitch, what types of feedback (both positive and negative) they receive, and of course seeing some of Asheville’s up-and-coming startups while networking with other entrepreneurs and startup community leaders over breakfast (which is free!). The pitches begin at 8:15.
For startups looking to pitch, this is an amazing opportunity for:
• Seed-stage and series A level tech startups looking to raise a round of funding
• Early-stage tech startups looking for some feedback on their business model (must at least have MVP)
This is NOT for:
• Entrepreneurs with just an idea and no development yet
• “Lifestyle” companies (ex. bars/restaurants, crafts, hobbyists, MLMs) -“A lifestyle business is a business that is set up and run by its founders primarily with the aim of sustaining a particular level of income and no more; or to provide a foundation from which to enjoy a particular lifestyle.”
