The Investor Panel is the highlight of our YEA! year. Our YEA! girls have an opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a panel of business leaders with the possibility of receiving startup funding for their businesses. We have an amazing evening in store for you. All guests are welcome to arrive early for networking and hors d'oeuvres before the student presentations commence. You will be able to see each girl pitch their business idea with the possibility to tap into a $15K + pool of seed funding. While the panelists deliberate to determine the seed funding amounts and the winner who will go on to compete at the YEA! National Saunders Competition, we will allow you to help select the viewer's choice award for one of our girls. Dress code: Business Attire
