Boston Entrepreneurs #Unpitch VCs

Securing funding for your startup can be both daunting and difficult. The plethora of crowdfunding companies and those claiming to connect you with VCs – for a price – don’t make the landscape any easier to navigate.

A few folks in Boston are collaborating with New England Venture Capital Association in hopes of making the process easier for startup entrepreneurs, via December 11’s first “Unpitch.” A free event, #unpitch is “a new event geared to entrepreneurs interested in connecting with investors.”

I can vouch that there are some pretty credible names involved in this endeavor, from both the organizational side, as well as the VC side. So why not take your chance and “unpitch” your business? Caveats are that you need to be willing to talk openly about your idea – not just to VCs but in front of the other chosen entrepreneurs. Game? Here’s how to apply. (Deadline December 1). Good luck!
