Pitch and Grow - Fresh Look!
An exciting edition of Pitch & Grow will feature new presenters and ideas that have not been previously featured at a TAI Pitch & Grow. Prior to Prometheus, entrepreneurs will pitch their business to a supportive group of peer CEOs, CIOs, business development experts, industry professionals and business-savvy people. In return, they have a unique opportunity to receive constructive feedback on areas such as fundraising, value proposition, business plan, management team, sales/marketing/support and building strategy.
- Pitch your business to a "Think Tank" of individuals to gain momentum in taking your company to the next level.
- Refine your pitch with little to no risk.
- Network with and gain access to other talented people and ideas in an open environment.
- Gain ideas and learn business growth strategies that can help your own company.
- Enjoy a rich networking experience.
- Sit in for part of or the entire day.

Presenters will receive a complementary spot in our exhibition space earlier in the day.
