TEN is an exclusive networking where EVERYONE gets to give their pitch to EVERYONE in the room. We begin with networking and refreshments at 5:30, and then start the pitches at 6:00. Each attendee drops a business card in the bucket, and we pull out 5 at a time. Each of those 5 then give their one minute pitch to everyone. We then announce a ten minute break so anyone who wants to connect with one of the 5 that just spoke has the chance to do so – then we gather again, pick another 5 cards, and do it all again. We repeat this until everyone has had an opportunity to speak. A perfect TEN. Because of the format, these events are limited to just 30 attendees, so book your ticket before they’re sold out!
