The evening will help showcase local startups and introduce investment-ready businesses to South Florida

To help introduce aspiring businesses to its ‘Incubate’ Program while highlighting innovative companies needing investment, the Alan B Levan | NSU Broward Center of Innovation is hosting a Pitch Night event. The program begins at 4 p.m. on April 25 at 3100 Ray Ferrero Jr. Blvd, Fifth Floor in Fort Lauderdale and will help provide the pitching organizations with exposure to potential customers, investors and community members.

The Levan Center’s ‘Incubate’ Program is a six-week course that allows entrepreneurs who have a tested minimum viable product (MVP) and a clear customer base to continue through the growth stage of business development. The participating organizations utilize various wraparound services and labs at the Levan Center to continue the advancement of their business proposition. The focus areas of the ‘Incubate’ program include Rapid Prototyping, Commercialization and Funding Structure.

Five of the resident ‘Incubate’ program participants will present their projects to a panel of judges during the Pitch Night event. The five presenting organizations include:
