United States: “Are You Serious”
Last Updated: November 26 2015

On November 19, at its Rockefeller Center offices, BakerHostetler co-sponsored the pitch event "Are You Serious" along with tech company incubators, The Hatchery and SourcePad. The event was designed to teach entrepreneurs from emerging tech companies how to improve their presentation skills through pitches to a panel of venture capital investors. The evening included presentations from four entrepreneurs whose companies had developed beyond the start-up stage through seed funding at different levels. Entrepreneurs from Molo, a marina management software company; Sortbox, an employer branding company; Pci Global Inc., a project management training and computer simulation company; and RideConnect, a ride sharing social network made their pitches to the panel in front of approximately 80 audience members, which was largely composed of other tech company founders as well as several BakerHostetler attorneys.

After each presentation, the panel, which included Bill Reinisch of Paladin Capital, Steven Greenberg of ff Venture Capital, and Yao Huang of The Hatchery, critiqued the presentations on issues affecting the pitch decks, such as pricing models, market segments, and competitive landscapes. After the event,  BakerHostetler attorneys offered a pro bono workshop and networked with many of the tech company representatives in attendance. Future events of this nature will be hosted by BakerHostetler in collaboration with The Hatchery.
