The Startup Gauntlet is a gathering of top DC-area entrepreneurs, angels, and business experts from the SLP network who are ready to hear about your startup and put it through the gauntlet! The event will start with an introduction to our experts and their top tips for venture success and then will quickly open up to the main event, a time for startup entrepreneurs to share specifically about their ventures. The experts will in a direct, but no BS manner, identify areas of venture weakness and ask for your comebacks. This will be in a small group conversational setting (not on stage), so, no pressure. Come ready to improve your venture and venture ideas.
