We are excited to have the GATOR CAGE® as a bonus session again this year. Sometime in your entrepreneurial career you will have to make a presentation to raise funding whether it’s your family, friends, bank, angels, venture capitalists or investors and 98% get turned down! Do you know of an entrepreneur that would like to pitch their idea for possible funding? Present to the GATOR CAGE® and learn how to get it right.
