5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

McCarter & English, 15th floor, 4 Gateway Center - 100 Mulberry Street, Newark NJ

A short covered walk from Newark Penn Station. Directions.

While our alumni entrepreneurs are busy working on their investor pitches, it’s time for our attendees to register to attend. If you’re an entrepreneur or a wannapreneur, learn how it’s done. This is a great opportunity for service providers that serve start-ups and entrepreneurs to get new clients and make new connections. Investors are welcome to attend to hear the pitches, meet the entrepreneurs, and see if you want to continue an investment dialogue.

This event is a great opportunity to learn, connect, and be entertained. This event sells out every year so don’t wait to register as we expect another full house.

This event is being held in the Newark office of McCarter & English, LLP, which is connected by covered walkways to Newark Penn Station, so please consider coming by train. Parking at the Gateway complex is not free (sorry!), but there is no event at the Prudential Center so will be very reasonably priced.
