First Friday: Your Small Business Resource
Business Pitch Competition: Tanque de Tiburones (Shark Tank)
In Partnership with the Nashville Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
New business pitching competitions are both exciting and terrifying to entrepreneurs seeking to materialize their business dreams. Facing a Startup Pitch Competition may be the only way for your business to take the first step towards a real path to success. But what does it take to come up with a successful pitch? Learn what your potential investor/funding sources might care to know about your business idea.
During our NAHCC's 1st Facing the Sharks Business Pitch Conversation you will have the opportunity to hear from seasoned and successful entrepreneurs/investors and finance professionals to gain some valuable insight and some equally valuable feedback for your business idea or work in progress. You will be known, your ideas heard, network (virtually), and potentially build alliances and partnerships but, most importantly, you will get a chance to polish your game and even maybe learn a thing or two about how to secure funding to start your business.
