  • 6:50pm Everyone in their seats for "hard start" at 7pm: We will workshop the first business "on deck" for 45 minutes. They give a 3 minute summary of their business, including opportunities, challenges, what they can give to the round table, what they need help with. We respond with 42 minutes of questions, feedback, and help.

The second business "on deck" is updating us on an earlier pitch and ask.
