17 Feb Swimming With Sharks
Don’t worry – you didn’t miss Shark Week (that’s in June). What you shouldn’t miss is the upcoming networking event, Pitch Night hosted by Verge.
Join us at The Hi-Fi on Thursday Feb. 23 at 5:30 PM, where we’ll join 300+ tech entrepreneurs, investors, and top talent from the Verge community.
We’re extra excited because our own Founder/CEO – Erin Sparks – will be participating at the event. And as a shark, no less!
That’s what we’re calling them, anyway. Each participant will have five minutes to pitch their SaaS product to the Sharks (a la ‘Shark Tank’).
Mimir – an Ed Tech startup making revolutionary tools for Computer Science courses.
Springbuk Health – a health analytics solution that offers a complete view of an employer population.
Boosterville – an offers & loyalty platform that seamlessly connects merchants with cause-driven buyers.
A panel of local talent consisting of investors, entrepreneurs and tech leaders with diverse backgrounds and perspectives who will give feedback to participants and provide insight for the up-and-coming talent. There’s some great talent leading the charge, as listed below.
Don Scifres – President, SmartFile
Rosanne Burge, Senior Partner at Elevate Ventures
Erin Sparks, Founder/CEO, Site Strategics
5:30 PM — Doors open, general networking
6:00 PM — Participant pitches
7:00 PM — General networking & open house
8:30 PM — Live music, more networking
This is a great opportunity to connect with tech companies and those who want to invest in them. It will allow our team to meet and greet other movers and shakers in the Indianapolis community, which we always look forward to. We’re also excited to see the newly-renovated and reopened space at The Hi-Fi. Are you planning on attending the event? Have you attended previous Verge events? Let us know!
