Calling all entrepreneurs! Do you have a dream that you would love to grow and share with local investors? If so, the Southern Tier Capital Fund of New York would love to help you! Now that you have attended one of our workshops, this is your chance to jump in the tank and present your pitch to local investors. Three companies will have a chance to present their pitch, with 10 minutes to present information and 10 minutes for questions. Investors will give constructive feedback, and may choose to back your business! Even if you don’t present your pitch at this event, please feel free to attend! For more information, and to see how your business can be involved, please contact Darren MacDonald at darren@stcfny.com. We look forward to seeing you there!

BOLD: Finding Balance Through the Busy @ Southern Tier Incubator
Aug 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

BOLD (Business Owners Leading Discussions) to present Finding Balance Through the Busy – What would you do with more time? Featuring Ala Ladd of Help Getting Healthy.

BOLD meetings are for business owners looking to learn something new to help them build their business. The meetings are a speaker series, with learning-focused presentations, plus pitch-free networking. Pitch-free is important to us. We encourage people to get to know each other, build relationships, and then do business together or refer each other outside of our networking meetings if it suits them. We want attendees to be comfortable, feel no pressure, and enjoy themselves. We’d love to have you join us!

If you would like to suggest a topic, sponsor/host a meeting, or are interested in speaking at a BOLD Meeting, please contact
Elin Barton at elin@whiteknightpro.com or Kim Bush at kbush@egraphics.us
