Why All Startups Should Practice Their Investor Pitch at IDEA Pitch

Any budding entrepreneur should attend IDEA Pitch, EvitEvent’s Laura Baverman reports.

IDEA Fund Partners’ IDEA Pitch is a bimonthly event wherein entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to the firm’s managing partners and a special guest in 2 minutes and then receive feedback on their pitch. The last event, held in April, occurred at Bunker Labs and featured the NC IDEA Foundation’s new CEO, Thom Ruhe.

“The men represent important funding sources in the area. They are also brutally honest, but in an unintimidating, helpful way,” she writes. “There may not be an event as constructive as IDEA Pitch.”

Founded in 2007, IDEA Fund Partners has invested in 27 companies and become one of the most active seed and early stage venture capital firms in the Southeast. They are currently investing out of a $15.1 million IDEA Fund II. Some notable portfolio companies include names such as WedPics, Windsor Circle, Reveal Mobile, Pendo, FilterEasy and Sift.
