We've had over 60 businesses and projects go ONDECK since we launched in 2015, and we look forward to helping you grow your venture!.

Your elevator pitch: 2-3 minutes describing your business or project, what problem or demand it addresses, what makes it unique, who you are and why you're the person to carry this through.

Your ASK: What do you need from Team LIFT - the entrepreneurs who will be at the table to help you grow or pivot your business? *

It could be help with focusing a broad business interest. It could be help with making a pivot or re-branding. It could help with acquiring new customers. It could be money. Or? You tell us what you need to grow. 50-100 words please
What are you prepared to "give back" to the table as a thank you for their help?

"Giving back" is part of the collaborative, community focus in our approach. Be creative - and think of this as a unique marketing opportunity: how can you leave a lasting, positive impression on a group of people who are investing time and bought a ticket to help you grow your business. It can be as simple as a discount for people using your services. Or coupons. Or product samples. Or?? 50-100 words please.
Please give us all the online tools you're currently using to market your business or project.
