ideaTAP is one part networking + one part pitch refinement + a heap of startup support in one event!
Presenters are selected in advance and have 5 minutes to pitch their startup. It can be an up-and-running company, the seeds of a someday-company or an idea for a product—the stages of development are all over the map. With potential partners, investors and clients in the audience it’s a great opportunity to get feedback in a low pressure environment.
+ After a 5-minute Q&A, attendees submit feedback which the presenter will receive after the event. Often, the pitches are also recorded so presenters can watch themselves and improve.
+ Once the pitches are over (we limit them to 4 for brevity), it’s time to open up the taps and meet our diverse network of entrepreneurs, creatives, programmers, funders, founders and friends.
Idea Tap is an awesome opportunity not only for entrepreneurs with ideas, but for folks who want to get a better idea of the innovation brewing in our city. No startup experience required—just show up.
