Kicking off the New Year with The Consumer Show

2017 is already off to a great start at #theconsumershow.

As the only space in the city solely dedicated to B2C startups, our friends over at Switchyards Downtown Club host a monthly pitch event focused on consumer startups — “The Consumer Show” (#theconsumershow).  In case you missed the last show, check out: a video, a recap and photos.

The Agenda:

The event will highlight five startups and each one will present their business for five minutes. Then – to foster community support – each company will spend a few minutes on two topics: 1. What can the community can do to help their startup the most, and 2. What have they done successfully and can use to give back to other consumer startups? Each presentation wraps up with a five minute Q&A.

Excited? So are we! Register here.

Here are the presenting companies:
