Winter Mini One Day Entrepreneur Symposium Agenda

The Symposium
Learn about the following in one intense one day session of lectures followed by an afternoon of The Elevator Pitch Sessions:

Legalities of creating a new business,
Using the Internet/Technology and Social Medial to grow your business,
How to Raise Capital from Angels / Friends & Family, What is an elevator Pitch?,
How to protect your business idea, Intellectual Property
Negotiating a Term Sheet
What makes a bad business idea?
Case Studies & Personal Experiences from successful entrepreneurs (Entrepreneurs to be announced)

In the afternoon, join us for The Medical Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch Sessions- similar format to the popular show, “Shark Tank”. Our last session sold out immediately and was standing room only. This will be a 2 hour session where you can present your business idea to a panel of “Sharks” (Experienced Investors & Entrepreneurs) for possible collaboration, investment or business advice or you can simply join the many in the audience to watch and learn what a good business idea makes.

If you want to participate in The Elevator Pitch Sessions- you must download the executive summary form below and fill out. A limited amount of presenters will be selected.

Please note that no one in the audience nor the sharks sign NDA’s so present only what is in the public domain or what you feel comfortable with sharing.
