Event Description


Following a two year hiatus, the NJEDA is thrilled to announce the return of the NJ Founders & Funders on June 1!

Since 2014, the program has hosted more than 300 innovative start-ups and curated more than 3,600 one-on-one introductions with angel and institutional investors. The format of the event will again include one-on-one 10-minute meetings between investors and companies, as well as, a brief speaker presentation and opportunity for networking.

Registration is open now, and offered on a first come, first served basis. Registrants will be contacted by NJEDA before the event to confirm attendance.

Regardless of whether you plan to attend on June 1, or not, we welcome you to join us for the NJ Founders & Funders Quick Pitch Tips & Tricks Virtual Prep Session on May 16, 2022 at 1 pm. During the session entrepreneurs will hear more about what to expect at the event and learn valuable tips and tricks to master the “quick- pitch” with investors. We are delighted to welcome past NJ Founders & Funders investor participant, Dan Borok, co-Founder and Managing Partner with Newark Venture Partners, to share his insight on what investors want to hear!
