Meeting Format


The format of c-e2 will consist of networking over coffee, a pitch from an early-stage company with time for Q&A, and a "School of Hard Knocks" session. The Early Stage Company Pitch will spotlight one start-up each month. The School of Hard Knocks session will get in the trenches with a successful entrepreneur who will share first-hand experiences and perhaps some outlandish secrets, so other entrepreneurs may discover valuable lessons learned. The speakers will vary but the format will remain close to the following schedule:

8:00 - 8:30 a.m. Networking over coffee
8:30 - 8:45 a.m. Early Stage Company Pitch
8:45 - 9:15 a.m. The School of Hard Knocks
9:15 - 10:00 a.m. Networking over coffee
