In this recently introduced format, two or three companies will receive coaching from a MABA investor prior to competing at the live 1st Pitch event. Their pre-coaching pitch will be recorded and later presented to the audience, just prior to their “new and improved” live pitch. After the presentations, a panel of coaches and the entrepreneurs will take questions, while the audience votes on “Best in Show”.
But we need your help! There’s no money involved, but if you or someone you know has a company ready to test a pitch to real investors and take honest, constructive feedback from them, please have the company download, fill out and submit the application form you will find at http://www.1stpitchlifescience.com/1st-pitch-nyc/. Even if you are not chosen to make a pitch, we may extend you an offer to present a poster on your work. Application Deadline: September 26, 2018.
1st Pitch Life Science is organized by Mid Atlantic Bio Angels (MABA) (http://www.bioangels.net), a NY-based life science investor group, whose members participate in the investor panel. The program is designed to expose aspiring life science entrepreneurs to constructive criticism of their pitches and business models from experienced and knowledgeable professionals. In addition, participants get to connect with future advisors, mentors, and colleagues to grow their early stage ventures. The 1st Pitch event will be preceded by a “meet with investors” roundtable discussion, between 4:30 – 5:30 for academics and entrepreneurs (separate registration required). The investors at the roundtable will discuss the investment process, things to do and to avoid, and things investors look for in an investment opportunity.
