Investor Fishbowl Events
The William James Foundation hosts "Investor Fishbowl" events at our events and with our partners to help entrepreneurs understand what investors are looking for.
These events are primarily educational for the entrepreneurs and the audience. Entrepreneurs pitch their companies in front of an audience, and go through a Q&A session with professonal investors. The total pitch + Q&A time is typically 15 minutes. Then the investors hold what would normally be a private de-brief meeting in front of the audience. They hold their discussion as if the entrepreneur and the audience are not there, and tell each other what they really thought of the presentation.
We have hosted these events with the partners listed below:
