Hen House Picks Best of 18 Startup Pitches

Lisa Sheeran, Hen House's Director Determines Who Wins Cash and Services

Join Hen House Ventures on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 9:00am to see a live pitch event where the final 18 companies go toe-to-toe to win the cash prizes and notoriety. This event will be live-streamed so the public can watch the companies compete.  Lisa Sheeran will be one of 10 judges that will score each finalist based upon their submitted pitch deck, their demo video (which is not available to the public) and also their 5-minute presentation and interaction with the judges.
