Flight Night! Audience Choice Awards

November 21, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Everyone has a business idea— does yours stand out in the crowd? Put your business to the test by participating in Flight Night hosted by reSET and Murtha Cullina! This event is open to the community and gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch their businesses, gaining valuable feedback and possibly money from both the audience and a panel of expert judges.

All types of businesses and start-ups are welcome! This is an open forum for start-ups to share their business with investors, business experts, mentors, and friends. reSET specializes in mission-driven businesses, so if your business is addressing a social or environmental need, even better!

How does it work? Businesses will have just 5 minutes to prove their concept is ready for an investment. Both the panel of expert judges and the audience will offer valuable feedback at the end of each pitch. The Audience and the Judge’s each choose a business that stands out the most. The winners will take home a cash award raised by ticket sales. Tickets are $10 suggested donation.

Ticket Purchases Fund the Cash Reward: If you are able to contribute to the award, the suggested donation is $10, but you are welcome to select the ticket option of “pay what you can” to give sliding scale 0-$10. If you are not in a place to make a contribution, no worries. Please join! You have the option of paying at the door.
