SNEEF Event: Piranha Pond Pitch Party September 10

September 10, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Piranha Pond Pitch Party is Back on South Coast September 10

You’ve Heard of the “Shark Tank” … The Third Annual Piranha Pond Pitch Party on the South Coast will be bringing entrepreneurs and investors together on Thursday, September 10, 6:00-9:00 p.m., at the UMass Dartmouth Library Grand Reading Room, 285 Old Westport Rd., North Dartmouth, MA (Parking in Lot 13).

The Piranha Pond program is a partnership between the Southern New England Entrepreneurs Forum (SNEEF) and 128 Innovation Capital Group (128ICG).  Entrepreneurs seeking funding have a five-minute opportunity to convince an investor panel to give them the money for their start-up, which must have either revenue or a working prototype.  128ICG has successfully run the program at multiple sites in eastern Massachusetts.

Using a format similar that of the “Shark Tank”, the Piranha Pond enables the investors to provide feedback to the entrepreneurs about their presentations and companies, and information to all about why they decide to be “In” or “Out”.  If they are “In”, they will meet with the entrepreneur at a later time to discuss the entrepreneur’s company.  If they are “Out”, they will let the entrepreneur and audience know why.

The Investor Panel will provide a broad spectrum of investment interests.  Panelists are:

  • Ray Mathieu, Individual Angel Investor
  • Christopher Rezendes, Inex Advisors
  • Lydia Schroter, Golden Seeds
  • Jennifer Schwall, Cherrystone Angels

The Piranha Pond is open to the public, and other investors are expected to be in the audience.

Admission – $35

128 Innovation Capital Group Members – $25

SNEEF Members – No Charge

Pizza and salad dinner.  Join SNEEF for $75 and attend the forums free.
