Research Park Events

This is a fun, casual way to practice your pitch (either an elevator pitch or a pitch deck) and get feedback from colleagues in the Research Park. The ideas is to practice before you have to do it with investors or stakeholders. This is also a good way to try out a new pitch or product idea. We will videotape the pitches so companies can see themselves and review their performances internally. We will have short anonymous pitch scorecards for the audience to give feedback to the presenters on key aspects. We welcome Research Park employees to come listen to the pitches, ask questions, and help provide feedback to the companies. Appetizers as well as beer and wine will be served.

So we can manage the number of companies who will be pitching at this event, please register your company's participation here: http://go.illinois.edu/pitchparty. We encourage you to use your slide deck, speak for about 8-10 minutes, or do a short elevator pitch about your business and take questions. Each companies time will be limited to about 15 minutes and we''ll have music and fun in between companies. Don''t be shy!
