We plan to have HVTechFest winners to present their projects and discuss their next steps / test their projects for a startup viability.
We will be happy to see you presenting - please submit your startup talk / pitch / challenge using this form: https://tinyurl.com/StartupHV
Join us to discuss your idea, specific challenge building & launching a startup, or if you have services to offer the startup ecosystem. StartupHV is focused on early-stage startups - from idea, to launch & beyond.
StartupHV meets monthly, 8 times / year. We are located at mid Hudson Valley and we serve as a community incubator - helping regional startups to start and grow. https://www.meetup.com/StartupHV/
You can apply to present your startup idea, pitch investors, or apply for a "hot seat" to solve a specific startup challenge you are facing.
If your startup is struggling to have a clear business-model, or you want to clarify and improve it, you can apply for a hot-seat at the StartupHV meetup. We implement a crowd-sourcing approach to your business-model, using the Business Model Canvas (BMC), Value Proposition Canvas (UVP), SWOT analysis, Scenario Planning or other business tools.
If you'd like to give your idea a try, just do it! Test it on a very loyal and supportive community. Don't worry, it is not feasible to steal your idea, instead you will test your assumptions and experience a first run of market-solution fit. You will also get a tones of brilliant ideas how to make it viable. If you perform well, you can find a potential partner, investor or an early adopter! May be you will find your customers too - who knows?
If you'd like to pitch, please plan to prepare:
- 1 min pitch (teaser, no slides). Usually contains your What and Why, Value, Traction and Call to Action.
- 10 min pitch (with slides). May include: Teaser, Problem-Solution, Customer Profile, Value Prop, Competitors, Financial metrics, Team profiles, Call to Action.
Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or you want to apply for a hot-seat!
