Work in a Tech Startup: TechConnect Reverse Pitch

If you're a software developer or UX/UI designer, TechConnect gives you the opportunity to meet local early stage startups who need tech help!

What Is TechConnect? 

Based out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, TechConnect is a reverse pitch where four startups will pitch an audience of software developers and designers, and their "ask" is what they are looking for from a technical perspective (a co-founder, tech advisor, employee, etc.).

What to Expect:

Access to New Opportunities

Each startup will pitch for 8 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. At the end of the event, there will be a post-event survey in which all of the attendees will be able to select the companies that they'd like to meet and be introduced to discuss potential collaboration. The event organizer will then manage the introductions to the founders in the days following the event.
