This is the third in a series of blogs featuring the Venture Club, written by Evening MBA student Kelci Dye.
Powderkeg hosted a great event called Powderkeg Pitch Night in March in the Salesforce building in downtown Indy.
Featured at the event were three business presentations with a question and answer session from a panel of advisors.
The three companies that presented were Covideo, WorkHere and DoubleMap. They were all local, tech-focused and fairly recent start-ups. All companies had already had great success and were looking to grow and hire more talent.
The advisors on the panel were seasoned players and investors in the venture community. They understood the environment in which these companies were participating, as well as the necessary elements to grow a successful startup.
Unlike the well-known TV show, these advisors were not there to tear apart the company and test the resolve of its leaders. The advisors asked very knowledgeable and forward-thinking questions to make sure the leaders were on track for moving forward.
