students the information and resources that have made them successful.
There will be twelve roundtable sessions, with topics ranging from
“Pitching and Pitch Decks” to “Finding your Funding Pathway” to
"Design Thinking for Entrepreneurs" to “Building a Sustainable Vermont
Start Up.” When you register, you have the option of choosing three out of
the twelve roundtable sessions. Each of the sessions is 30 minutes, with a
15-minute buffer for finishing conversations and networking between sessions.
The event's keynote speaker is UVM alumnus Scott Bailey, Executive Director,

mission to help entrepreneurs win without taking equity. MassChallenge also
gives out over $2M in equity-free cash prizes. Bailey's topic is “Creating
an Entrepreneurship Ecosystem.”
