Thursday, March 7th | 12:00 - 5:30 p.m. | Hall of Fame Club
The 3RVF Bootcamp takes place on Thursday, March 7th at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. This is a mandatory event for all selected presenting companies.
Two (2) representatives from each selected presenting company will be permitted to attend. One of the representatives must be the person who will be presenting at the Fair in April.
What is a Bootcamp?
The 3RVF Bootcamp is a mandatory event for all presenting companies and is one of the primary factors behind the Fair’s reputation as an exceptional investment showcase.
In essence, the Bootcamp provides the opportunity for presenters to “practice” their presentations and obtain valuable advice from a seasoned panel of investment professionals, which helps to maximize their opportunities at the event. During the Bootcamp, presenters will be briefed on important instructions, equipment and venue, including:
- Start/Stop Signals
- AV Equipment Briefing
- Room & Event Layouts
- Exhibit Information
- Presentation Time
While the Bootcamp is an extraordinary learning opportunity for entrepreneurs at every level of growth, it is also a safeguard against embarrassing and potentially damaging situations. In years past, we have had to remove a presenter awkwardly when they did not recognize their cut-off signals and another presenter experienced an untimely issue with the AV equipment, which would have been avoided with a practice run at the Bootcamp. The Bootcamp helps to ensure that every attendee and every presenting company has the most pleasurable and productive experience possible.
While the Bootcamp is first and foremost, a preparatory activity, its value as a networking, business-building event cannot be overstated. Throughout the day, presenters will have the opportunity to talk one-one-one with investors, sponsors and representatives from other featured companies. For many, the Bootcamp is one of the most rewarding elements of the event.
