Piranha Pond Blue

November 14, 2022 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

What is the Piranha Pond?  It is a “pitch party” where a select group of entrepreneurs has up to 5 minutes to convince a panel of investors to meet with them to further discuss their ventures. Using a format similar to the popular television show Shark Tank, our investors provide feedback to the entrepreneurs about their presentations and companies, and information to all about why they decide to be “In” or “Out.” If they are “In” they will meet with the Entrepreneur at a later time to discuss their company. If they are “Out” there is no interest at this time. Again, the investor lets us know why s/he will not move forward with the presenter. 

For this event, we seek companies beyond the idea stage who are developing a “blue” technology product or service. The ideal company will have raised funds from friends, family, and/or grants such as SBIR’s. If the company’s product is a software or SAAS product, it should be in beta testing or later.  

A selection committee will choose the top 8 applicants to present. The successful applicants will be deemed to have companies most likely to interest the investment panel.

This Piranha Pond is being co-organized by the Blue Venture Forum, Innovate Newport, SoCoEco, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce.  

Piranha Pond Pitches are streaming in from the blue tech start up community. Keep ‘em coming. DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 31. To apply to pitch your product visit: https://www.rocketjudge.com/register/XqvlYJ2X
