In accordance with the Kickoff Event, TEC will also host a Teaming Event to help students form or join a venture team. It will be held Thursday, December 13, 2012.

 

What is a Teaming Event?

 

Useful definitions:

 

“Skill” Students: those students that have a particular skill to offer a potential CNVC team, but without a specific product or company idea

 

“Idea” Students: those students that have a company/product idea, but need to form a well-rounded team including students with skills in marketing, finance, writing, etc.

 

Please note that participants in CNVC do not have to have their own startup. If interested participants have skills that would be useful to a new venture, we will help to match you with one. Likewise, participants do not have to have a fully-formed venture team; we will connect you with other students that can help you!

 

CNVC would like to help “Idea” students and “Skill” students meet and form teams that will then enter the competition. Forms that will serve as a pitch sheet for “Idea” students and for a résumé of sorts for “Skill” students can be found on the CNVC website. Interested students are asked to register, and to fill out a form in order to participate in the Teaming Event by 5:00 PM on Tuesday, December 11, 2012.

 

Each student with a company or product idea will have 60 seconds to present that idea to the audience at the Teaming Event. After all of these presentations are complete, the “Idea” students and the “Skill” students will network with one another to get a feel for whether or not they could make a good addition to the team.

 

Once the networking is complete, the Teaming Event Reception will begin. Students are encouraged to stay for the reception to continue networking.
