Carpe Diem! Is a lunchtime pitching event where you can meet at least 2 investors, pitch your deal to them, and receive immediate feedback, suggestions, and referrals.
At noon, you will sit at an assigned roundtable where your target investor is sitting, and give him your pitch over lunch. There will be 5 entrepreneurs sitting at the table, and each of you will get 5 minutes to pitch (without PPT) and receive 5 minutes of feedback, suggestions, and referrals from the investors and peers.
At 1:15PM, you will move to sit at another roundtable where your second target investor is sitting, and give him your pitch over coffee.
At the end of the lunchtime event, you will have met at least 2 investors who gave you feedback on your business pitch, and at least 8 to 10 fellow entrepreneurs to add to your ever-growing Rolodex.
Here’s a tip. The seat assignments are first-come-first-serve. That means that you should be there early to reserve a seat at the investors’ table of your choice.
It’s a lot of fun because it is very interactive. And, don’t worry about others listening to your pitch. If yours is better, it only scares the bajeezus out of them. It’s not about the pitch anyway! It’s about the execution.
And, you’ll find that most entrepreneurs will want to give you referrals to service providers and other investors they know that you should talk to.
