eTech Students Get Exposed in the City

Students from the StartingUp Now eTech IT Training Program got exposed to their first business pitch event at the November Technori Pitch gathering last night.

 

Through the generous support of Seth Kravitz and team at Technori (thanks, everyone!), almost 50 high school students and their eTech instructors from our 2 program locations, YMEN and Tha House, sat inside the Chase Auditorium with 500 other entrepreneurs, developers and tech enthusiasts listening to 6 startups pitch their product and services.

The event, though normally a buzz with plenty of enthusiasm from the crowd, was all the more exciting as I overheard students sitting next to me whisper thoughtful and humorous comments about the companies’ pitches. Each of them had their favorites, running the gamut for why they liked the pitch—ranging from the usability of the product to the way team members presented their information and fielded questions by the audience. It was clear their interest was piqued as the evening progressed, culminating into conversations post-event about the types of businesses many of them envisioned to launch themselves.

We're hoping that this event, along with many other field trips we've got lined up, will help cultivate real opportunities for students to access inspiring ideas, information, and networks to help develop their budding entrepreneurial futures.

It’s never too early to start dreaming and planning, and we couldn’t think of a better way for getting them plugged in to a dynamic, growing and creative industry than technology. Let the developing begin…

I have not found a lot of blogs that deliver such consistently readable and
informative content as is on offer here, you deserve the time it takes to
share my appreciation at your endeavours. Many thanks.

Not many blogs that contain such consistently readable and interesting content as is on offer on yours,
you deserve the miniscule amount of time it takes to write my appreciation at your hard work.

Thank you.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential.

.. these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them
to do because they want to do it.

It is nice to find some decent content for once, I was getting tired of the retarded drivel I come across of late, respect.

A heart well prepared for adversity in bad times hopes, and in good times fears
for a change in fortune.

I gotta say, I am more amazed by the so called generic commenter” than
by the out and out spammer. You might ask why, Because at least the spammer is completely open and honest
with their spam! I know who they are. The so called generic spammer is a liar and also a faker!
You can probably notice that I have very strong toward these type of commenters

You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the
credit for your achievements.

In so many ways, I am more amazed by the so called generic spammer” than I am by the
out and out spammer. Why? at least the spammer is more open and honest about their spam!
I know who they are. The generic commenter is a con man and
a fake! You can probably see that I have very strong opinions toward these type of idiots
