Entrepreneur Speaker Series: Alec Avedissian, Founder & CEO, Rareform

"Shark Fishing. How a Conejo Valley startup beat the odds on Shark Tank to land the most wonderful shark of all!"

Admit it. You've fantasized about appearing on Shark Tank to pitch the next great startup idea. In your fantasy, you wow the sharks with your business acumen, use your world-class negotiating skills to get them fighting with each other over the privilege of investing, then close the deal. Hugs and high fives ensue, as all of the sharks show their appreciation for the BEST PITCH EVER!

If only it was that easy.

This past March, Conejo Valley startup Rareform had the opportunity to pitch to the Sharks for real, landing an investment from Kevin "Mr. Wonderful" O'Leary himself! For the May 2 Entrepreneur Speaker Series, RareformFounder and CEO Alec Avedissian, will relive that moment, answer questions, and reflect upon the experience. 

Please join us. There's no charge, but registration is required as seating is limited.
