A Guppy Tank is a highly interactive and intense review and advising session, in which the members of the DEN DC focus their considerable expertise to the task of improving a single startup and its pitch.
For this Guppy Tank event, we will work to improve the business plan and the pitch for the winner of the DEN DC 2014 Annual Business Plan Competition that will be held on Tuesday, February 25, 2014. Our goal is to use the Guppy Tank event to make the winning DEN DC startup more competitive in the DV14 Entrepreneurship Contest to be held in Hanover in April 2014.
All members of DEN DC are encouraged to participate in the Guppy Tank. The benefit that accrues to the startup in the Guppy Tank grows exponentially with the number of DEN DC members who participate.
This Guppy Tank event will be moderated by Keith Rosten T’89.
