COVID-19: Event Update

“It’s moments like this when we remember why we do what we do here at The Brink SBDC. It is up to each of us to work together to navigate challenges like the one we’re facing now. We remember why out-of-the-box thinking, rapid and lean innovation help us every day to elude crises and solve worthy problems. We know innovation makes the difference and we’ll continue to do all we can to support those entrepreneurs who are working to make the world a better place.”

Entrepreneur Track

Get ready! SDAC III starts again in the fall, when entrepreneurs will gather for a months-long workshop series to prepare for the conference. They practiced their pitches and learned the essentials of seeking angel investment.

Investor Track

After the application deadline in December, the group of investors participating in the conference fund started to review companies. Week after week they narrowed the field, heard pitches, and engaged in debate. For many investors, this is their first exposure to the angel process.

Save the Date: March 28 – Main Conference Event

Join us to watch the six finalists give their final pitch after completing due diligence and months of review. One company will walk away with an investment of $200,000 as voted upon by the angel investors at the event. In between, hear from innovators that are pushing the ecosystem forward.
