Entrepreneur Spotlight Event

Presented by The Entrepreneur Center @NVTC

May 5, 2011

For Accredited Investors Only

Entrepreneur Spotlight provides startups seeking seed and early stage funding an opportunity to present their concept in front of an audience of accredited investors.

The Entrepreneur Spotlight program allows both experienced and potential new investors to hear the exciting and innovative ideas of startups pursuing seed funding. Entrepreneur Spotlight will focus on companies that are truly in the startup phase and may only be looking for small amounts of funding.

During the event, the startups will have five minutes to present their business concepts and will be given 10 minutes to answer questions from a panel. Event attendance is limited to individuals that qualify as accredited investors.

The program is intended solely to provide attendees an opportunity to learn about new emerging companies and hear directly from these entrepreneurs about what their companies do, how they do it, what markets they address and their plans for future growth. The program is informational only. No offering of securities will be made by any participants and neither this program nor the presentations by the participating companies should be deemed solicitations of interest for investment.
