FYI for ASW3 grads

November 18, 2009 § 2 Comments

Thanks to Alan Urech for this info – thought all of my fellow Atlanta Startup Weekend alumni might find this interesting:

The MIT Enterprise Forum of Atlanta is now accepting applications from start-up companies who would like to participate in their January 13, 2010 Run It By The Pros workshop.

During this MIT Enterprise Forum event four companies will be given the opportunity to present their “ten minute pitch” to a volunteer pro panel made up of representatives from the Atlanta start up community, including an investor, serial entrepreneur and lawyer.  After the presentation and panel feedback, the audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions about the pitch and company.

There is no cost for the selected presenters to participate in this event.  The workshop will be held from 3:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at the law offices of Sutherland, located at 999 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, Georgia, 30309.  The judging criteria and an application are attached.

The deadline to submit your application and Executive Summary for consideration is Friday, December 4, 2009 at 12 noon.  Both documents are required to complete your application and should be sent to [not me   :)  I put a copy of the application form and guidelines here: ]

Please forward this announcement to anyone who you feel has an interest in application.  I’ve attended a few of these and if you get accepted be ready to be put under the microscope, but it can really sharpen up your investor presentation.

  • Run It By The Pros is a great event. While we had a great group of companies come out of Atlanta Startup Weekend if I were leading one I might hold off on this until later in 2010. It seems to me that the participants are generally a little bit further along then ASW projects.

    If I were leading an ASW company I would go to Startup Gauntlet in December, apply for the GRA/TAG Business Launch Competition in January, and pitch at Startup Riot in February (apply now), and take things from there.

    Oh, I would also apply to ATDC.

      Lance, good point. A team would have to get a ton accomplished to be truly ready for Run It By the Pros, but it is a good one to have on the radar and clearly some of these teams have shown that they can get an amazing amount of mountain moved in an incredibly short time.
