About This Event

When Shark Tank and Open Mic Night had a baby, it was called Pitch Club. These one hour events occur every two weeks and are designed to showcase innovative startups while enabling them to get questions and feedback from Clinicians and Investors. The preparation is valuable and the exposure is priceless. Competition for the slots is high. Clinicians and Investors are able to network with the entrepreneurs after the events and this often leads to advisory and investment opportunities.
