Eastern Bank sponsored a panel-style venture pitch event today that drew more than 40 people and resembled ABC’s Shark Tank show!
In addition to investors from Boston Harbor Angels, several of the entrepreneurs representing the start-up companies housed at M2D2 also pitched their ventures to Louie Soares and Wendy Alvarez of Eastern Bank and to Jinge Wu of RWP Capital. Nancy Briefs presented information on her company, Infobionic, as did Mark Mendel of Flow Forward Medical LLC. Andy Carter of TheraCell and Bob Thompson of Vista Scientific also presented information on their companies.
All had to answer tough questions from the panel of investors regarding their technologies, current stage of development and financial projections.
