RAMP Pitch & Polish March 30, 2021

Pitch & Polish clinics provide a valuable opportunity for 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 anywhere from banking, legal services, entrepreneurship, and more. Each participant receives a 25 minute time slot – the first 10-15 minutes to pitch and the remaining time for questions and feedback.

Date: Tuesday, March 30, 2021

Time: 6:00PM-8:00PM

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or sitting in as a judge, please contact RAMP below.
