Thank you for your interest in sharing your business expertise and knowledge with a presenting company at an upcoming NHHTC Entrepreneur Forum, as well as the attending audience. Panelists come from a broad range of backgrounds and are selected based upon their experience and its applicability to the presenters. Examples of the type of people who participate are: C-level and senior executives, sales and marketing professionals, entrepreneurs, technologists, consultants, financial executives, angel investors, venture capitalists, lawyers, etc.
If chosen to be a panelist by the Panelist Committee, in advance of the event, you would receive a confidential copy of the company’s business plan and presentation by email. You will be informed if the company has a specific topic or concern requiring assistance or whether it is seeking a general review of the business plan in advance of seeking capital.
Your role will be to review the business plan and prepare comments in advance of the event. At the event, the company will have 15 minutes to present their business to the panelists and audience. You will be one of three panelists and will have approximately 5-7 minutes to share your thoughts, concerns, suggestions, etc. We advise our panelists to be direct to the point of being blunt, but respectful and constructive.
Panelists are not monetarily compensated for their participation. However, they are invited to enjoy the networking and buffet dinner, and to receive complimentary admission and dinner. The information shared is shared on a confidential basis and we ask that our panelists not contact neither the Presenter nor its customers, suppliers or employees before the event. However, we do encourage the business relationship to continue between presenters and panelists after the event, in the case that there is interest to do so.
