Do You Have an Idea for a Startup?

Could you use blunt, honest feedback on your ideas from experienced entrepreneurs? Then join us for the Founder Hot Seat event, from the Founder Institute & Startup Breakfast Club. During this event, members of the audience will pitch their ideas, and receive helpful feedback. Even if you don't want to pitch, you are invited to register, hear startup ideas, and watch how the experts analyze and critique new businesses.

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone who wants feedback from leading entrepreneurs
  • Anyone who has an idea for a startup or an early-stage company
  • Anyone who needs practice and expert advice on pitching

The first 15 registered attendees to check-in will Pitch what they’re working on and get immediate, constructive feedback from like-minded entrepreneurs. (Total 4 minutes each)

It's not a contest. Just help if you want it, or, Chicken Soup for the Startup :-)

No matter how good you are at pitching, its always important to continue practicing and testing different approaches and angles. Startup Breakfast is a great way to network with the startup community.
- Julie Hubert, Founder & CEO,
Thank you very much for the Startup session of Septembre 9th. At 1st, I was afraid to ever come to your events and pitch in front of everyone. But I tried it last day and I think it was fun. I think I will come back to StartupBreakfast.
- Yrina
I was petrified to go up and pitch in front of the 10 people that were there :)
