As an International Keynote speaker and author of “Mingle to Millions The Art and Science of Building Business Relationships and Mastering Referrals”, it is super important that I live in total transparency and authenticity with HOW I build relationships and master referrals.

The start-up companies pitching have up to 3 minutes to answer 5 common questions about their business:
What is their product/service?
What is their business model?
Size of the Market they serve?
How do they get to market or get traction?
What are they here looking for? Capital, Partners, Advisers, etc..
PANEL MEMBERS: We typically have a mix of investors, and startup experts sit on our panel. Each event may have a different set of experts. Potential Advisers, Mentors and Audience members will be asked to approach start-ups of interest after the event. We will list the companies which will pitch as we approach the pitch date.
Our new panel member will be Tim Marshall.
Here is Tim’s bio:
Tim S. Marshall, creator of the Marshall Principles (www.marshallprinciples.com) and the Marshall Growth Institute (www.marshallgrowthinstitute.com), built his first company with a pen, a phone and a rickety desk – in one of the most economically challenged times of U.S. corporate history. Soon after, he was honored by “Inc. Magazine” for four years in a row by pronouncing his company as one of “The Fastest Growing Companies in America.” The South Florida entrepreneur with national recognition began 2017 with a bang by launching the first 6 books of the powerful 20 book series of Real Life Takeaways which is published by StarGroup Books (www.stargroupinternational.com). Tim S. Marshall is known for turning around both companies overnight. What sets Tim apart from others is speed, activity, and delivery.
Tim is determined to fuel his passion by helping others conquer their fear and reach their hidden potential. His no nonsense views on leadership, psychology, personal development and sales are changing the dynamics of life coaching. With Marshall’s Real Life Takeaways and executive training seminars in demand across the country he launched the Marshall Growth Institute (www.marshallgrowthinstitute.com) to provide life lessons in success. “Marshall it!” as Tim puts it, is about turning fear into exhilaration.
