Past Presenter Update

We showcase an outstanding team of entrepreneurs who are looking to raise capital for their venture. They have gone through an extensive coaching from our experienced coaches and these founders are eager to present their venture to the entrepreneurial community at this event. They would greatly appreciate your feedback, insights and encouragement. You will also learn a few tips and techniques in sharpening your own pitch for your venture.

This month Genomenon will present their story and give us an update since they initially presented in July 2014 as NEF Showcase Presenter.


Mike Klein, CEO.  Genomenon is a software-as-a-service company offering products that minimize errors and maximize the efficiency of genomic sequence analysis.

PANEL DISCUSSION:    Critical Hires for Your Startup Venture

In addition, we have a panel of experts who will guide you through understanding importance of hiring the right people for the success of your venture. What do entrepreneurs go through in hiring the right people in growing their companies? We are not talking about just the C-Suite hires, but also the other critical people, like, developers, engineers, and support managers that make the business work. Hear the stories and learn straight from the entrepreneurs themselves around this controversial topic.

We hope that this will be of greater interest and value to founders and it will be a dynamic discussion between entrepreneurs, investors and the audience.
