Here is a SHARED FOLDER {linked} with pitch decks and other key event information. Please take a look at the startup pitch decks prior to arriving {Friday/Saturday} at 8:30AM in our Main VCIC Zoom Room {linked}. If you would like to see how the day will work at the event, see VCIC-What It’s Like for Judges, but don’t worry, we’ll let you know where you need to be and what you need to do throughout the day.
