» 2nd floor
» Goldfish tank @ the TechCelerator
Have an idea or a business you're thinking about? Come pitch it. It can be an idea about tech, food, fun...whatever! Pitch with words, slides, videos to an encouraging group of people and a few nice judges who are more like goldfish than sharks. (The only requirement is that you keep your pitch to a max of 5 minutes.) In turn, you'll receive constructive feedback & tons of encouragement as the judges look at the quality of your pitch & your overall idea. The top 3 pitches will be awarded with some cool prizes, but all who present will walk away with something... It's a time that we can all listen to some cool ideas & get excited about innovation & invention.
» 3rd floor
» The Connection Zone
Not a fan of the off-the-cuff small talk? Head to the 3rd floor to engage in some facilitated conversations in small groups focused on a variety of interesting topics.
» 6th floor
» Fail So Good
For most emerging businesses, failure at some stage is as inevitable as it is invaluable. The Fail So Good session offers a unique opportunity to hear local entrepreneurs & business leaders share their missteps, stumbles, & face-plants – from recounting why they believe the failure occurred to the lessons they learned as they pivoted, persevered, or just plain-old started over... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
