It’s similar to TV’s American Idol, but with entrepreneurs rather than singers and celebrities. This annual event attracts entrepreneurs and investors, business and community leaders, and professional service providers for high-quality interactions leading to investments and economic growth. Three early-stage tech entrepreneurs seeking investment deliver their elevator pitches to an investor panel and the audience. After judges’ comments, everyone votes. A new Ben Franklin Venture Idol is announced and awarded a $5,000 investment in the company.
