Daniel Rossi:

NWEN's Spring First Look Forum or FLF is just around the corner. I'm going to hear 12 startup teams that have been preparing for months with investor/serial entrepreneur coaches pitch their hearts out for the VERY FIRST TIME in front of a massive crowd of angel and venture capital investors. I'm excited to go because I like hanging around very successful startup junkies and investors. It makes for a great atmosphere. And these teams that may be doing their first startups add to the excitement in the air.

 

When:

It's on 4/24/12 from 3:30 - 5:30 At the Arctic Club Hotel in downtown Seattle. 


Details:

This is an invite only event for investors. THEY should come because their colleagues and trusted advisors have been preparing the 12 finalist teams and the ideas/pitches being shared are going to be brand new. Deal flow - brand new deals - and they'll be pretty good because great coaches have been prepping the teams for months. If an accredited investor wants to come check out the fun they should write NWEN's staff and RSVP.


This years competition:

There are always some great companies that announce themselves to the world at the First Look Forum. Gaming, SaaS, app development, and even fresh hot pies will be represented in this FLF. There are up and coming entrepreneurs as well as a bevy of gnarled and experienced startup junkies that are back in the saddle again. And the investor attendees will get a chance to see it all first.

What to expect:

I expect to learn a lot about the aforementioned markets - their size, competitors there, what's broken and how these teams plan to fix them. I also look forward to hearing the celebrity VC judges ask their pointed questions and imagine that is me with another company in the future.


Want to attend this  FLF:

Email info@nwen.org to RSVP. Remember, you MUST be an accredited investor to attend at this point. Otherwise, check out NWEN.org or our weekly email to find out when the next FLF round opens up (late May).

There are a lot of competitions out there these days asking for investors to come and hear pitches. NWEN's First Look Forum has been around for a while and has a reputation of preparing the competitors. So the pitches heard are great...and brand new...no one else has heard them yet.
