Pitch & Polish

Virtual clinics allow entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas to a team of regional mentors who want to help them polish their presentation, provide feedback on their business model, and connect them with the resources they need to grow.

These are private events with one company at a time pitching their business idea to a regional group of mentors with expertise ranging from banking, legal services, entrepreneurship, and more. 

Why it Matters

RAMP aims to be a navigator of resources for entrepreneurs new to the ecosystem, a first touchpoint to help startups find their grounding and connect to appropriate resources such as subject-matter experts, external programs, and additional business resources.

It can take multiple levels of business acceleration for a company to break into commercialization for their tech.
