PortTechExpo #CleanTech Pitch Competition – Aug. 16th, Aug. 22nd, Sept. 5th

The 3rd Annual PortTechEXPO will feature a pitch competition for clean tech entrepreneurs on September 5th.  To be considered for the finals on September 5th you must participate in one of the coaching and mock judging sessions on either August 16th or August 22nd. Finalists will be selected from among the firms participating in the coaching sessions.

It’s important to take every opportunity you can to perfect your pitch and get your idea out there. In my book Getting in the Game I devote an entire chapter to meeting investors and discuss how pitch competitions can be a great way to do this. So with Angel and venture investors, business advisors and coaches, attorneys, accountants, and port representatives in attendance at the PortTechEXPO, anyone launching a clean tech startup may want to take advantage.
