Join us April 2 for reSET's Community Pitch Challenge (formerly known as Flight Night)!
What’s your 5 minute business pitch? Join entrepreneurs and professionals at Hartford’s most exciting pitch event where you can put your business concept to the test and receive feedback from the audience as well as a panel of experts. A cash award is crowd-sourced from the audience, giving the community a chance to invest in the top local business!
All types of businesses and start-ups are welcome! This is an open forum for start-ups to share their business with investors, business experts, mentors, and friends. reSET specializes in mission-driven businesses, so if your business is addressing a social or environmental need, even better!
How does it work? Businesses will have just 5 minutes to prove their concept is ready for an investment. Both the panel of expert judges and the audience will offer valuable feedback at the end of each pitch. The Audience and the Judge's each choose a business that stands out the most. The winners will take home a cash award raised by ticket sales. Tickets are $10 suggested donation.
Ticket Purchases Fund the Cash Reward: If you are able to contribute to the award, the suggested donation is $10, but you are welcome to select the ticket option of "pay what you can" to give sliding scale 0-$10. If you are not in a place to make a contribution, no worries. Please join! You have the option of paying at the door.
Food: Small bites & beverages provided.
Time: 5:30 – 8 pm. Pitching starts promptly at 6 pm.
