My Gene Counsel's UberPITCH

We are thrilled to be selected as a participant in UberPITCH!

Update 11/1/16: We have been selected a semifinalist to compete in the pitch-off at The Stamford Innovation Center on November 16th!

UberPITCH provides opportunities for entrepreneurs and self-starters by pairing them with an investor during an Uber ride. 

Here's how the newest version of the elevator pitch works. Entrepreneurs request their fourteen minute Uber ride and once they take a seat they have seven minutes to wow their potential investor. In this short time, they must pitch their business, idea or product. The investor then offers valuable feedback for the second half of the ride and may follow up with an investment. 

 

 

We took part in the "Fueling the Growth" event where we were honored to share our Uber ride with Cindy Tsung Hseuh. Cindy is a member of Fairview Capital Partners’ investment team. Thanks Cindy for taking time to learn about My Gene Counsel!

Thank you Uber, CT Innovations, Ewing Marion Kauffman FoundationStamford Innovation Center, and The Refinery for the outstanding opportunity and your support of women entrepreneurs.
