GEA’s Angel Pitch | April 12th at 6pm (invite only)

3 Apr

The angel pitch is an invite-only event held on April 12th at 6pm.

The GEA will host the top 8 student teams at CU and a handful of actively investing angels. The angels are attending to give feedback and, if the opportunity makes sense, possibly investment. The top teams will be chosen in advance by a panel of judges.

When: April 12th from 6 to 8 pm
Format: 5 min pitch, 5 min Q&A
Students: apply here to pitch your business (due 4/6)
Angels: reach out to mail@benbuie.com for an invite.

This is the first event of its kind at CU and we hope it will become a yearly tradition that increases the amount of funding available to smart and ambitious student entrepreneurs.

Thanks in advance for your participation and support!

This Week in Entrepreneurship

In MBA-specific news, the formal is on Friday so if you don’t have your tickets yet, purchase them TODAY or forever regret this missed opportunity to have expensive drinks with Wobbekind and Vossen. Sunday is also Selection Sunday in the NCAA basketball world, so gambling opportunities will abound for entrepreneurial students this time next week. If people were into that. And if gambling were legal. Enjoy the week!
