Techlaunch BullPen Pitch Competition June 22nd at 4:30pm

How do you get investors for your business?  It starts with you, and with your pitch.  Your pitch includes a 'pitch deck' which is a slide presentation with a quick overview of your business.  Slides typically include a description of your team, what problem you're solving, the market, your competition and your advantages over that competition, and it may include plans for an 'exit', which describes who would buy your company, in what time frame, and for how much. 

Investors want to have confidence that the person leading the company that they're investing in is the right choice.  The first impression they get of you is your pitch.  If that falls flat, they'll look elsewhere.  There are programs that help entrepreneurs develop their companies and their pitches.  We're lucky to have TechLaunch in Northern NJ, our answer to Shark Tank!

If you want to find out more about pitching and the process, join myself and others from the entrepreneurial community on June 22nd at Fairleigh Dickinson University for TechLaunch’s Bullpen, where you can observe a pitch competition led by some of the best.  It may inspire you to go to TechLaunch and pitch your own company!

Michael Shapiro is the CEO and Publisher of TAPinto.net, a network of more than 60 independently owned and operated online local newspapers in New Jersey and New York with over 5.5 million readers.  In October 2008, after five years of practicing law in New York City, Shapiro started an online, objective, local daily newspaper for his town, New Providence, as well as the adjoining towns of Summit and Berkeley Heights.  He began franchising sites in December 2013 to people who wanted to start online newspapers in their own town.

Michael will talk about the challenges of growing a local news network in a time when the industry is so crowded, the effect of sites like TAPinto on traditional publications, how he scaled to over 5 million people in just a few short years and how he took on the unique business model of franchising a web property; along with lessons in business and tips for our community to learn from.

Before becoming a successful New Jersey entrepreneur, Michael graduated Rutgers College, Rutgers University and Stanford Law School.  sign up here:
