#Entrepreneurial #chemists: Save the Date for #ACSERC Showcase East

Entrepreneurial Resource Center Showcase East


Save the Date Wednesday April 9, 2014 for this entrepreneurial extravaganza

The ACS Division of Small Chemical Businesses together with ACS National, the Northeastern Local Section, Chemical Innovation and Entrepreneurship Council, BMGT, PID Analyzers, LLC and Nova Biomedical, present the 2014 ACS Entrepreneurial Resource Center Showcase East, a chemistry-based business pitch competition, featuring a cash prize for the winning pitch. 

The event will take place on Wednesday April 9, 2014 at Nova Biomedical, 200 Prospect Street, Waltham, MA

The application process is officially closed as of 11:59pm on January 27, 2014. The competitive review of candidates will commence this week. 

About the application process:
To qualify as one of twenty participating entrepreneurs (there are only 20 slots available), candidates have to be an ACS member who has an investor-ready early-stage chemical business. Candidates were required to fill out an investor readiness questionnaire, and if selected after the competitive review process, will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with one of our business plan coaches to help construct a winning pitch. 

Note that the business pitching contest will be closed to the public and will be by invitation only.

If you are an investor, we want you! Participation is available in person or online. Email me to reserve your spot and to receive your prospectus which will be available in mid-February 2014.  

The RSVP link to the event is here. The evening portion of the event will be open to the public and will feature the winning pitch as well as some exciting entrepreneurial themed programming. Stay tuned for more details.
