On Friday, March 8th (International Women's Day), five finalists participating in the 2nd Annual WinLAVA Business Plan / Pitch Competition will present their business plans to a panel of judges from the Los Angeles area angel and venture community.
Judges will assess individual performance based on a combination of the quality of the entrepreneur's basic business plan, the potential fundability of the business, and the quality of the Pitch -- among other Judging Criteria.
This year's event will have several firsts: 3 minute presentations, PowerPoint slides, and an impressive collection of both judges and prizes. We will also be video recording the event compliments of Kimball Hall of Kimball Hall Photo & Video.
Please register and mark your calendars to reserve your seat at this fabulous event.
