Entrepreneur Council of Frederick currently accepting applications for Venture Forum

At 8 am on Thursday, March 25th, the Entrepreneur Council of Frederick County and the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce will present their semi-annual Venture Forum. Up to five companies will be selected to make their pitches for funding to an invited group of angel investors, venture capitalists, lenders, and other funding sources. The forum is Frederick County's only opportunity for businesses to present to an assembly of investors.

The Entrepreneur Council is currently accepting applications for potential presenting companies. Each selected company will present a 10-minute PowerPoint, followed by a 10-minute Q&A session. Presenting companies will also have an opportunity to present a practice draft of their presentation to members of the Entrepreneur Council, for coaching and feedback, in preparation for the Forum. The application deadline is February 15th.

If your company is searching for funding, especially equity funding, please consider applying to present. If you know of or work with companies that might be interested, please forward this to them.
