Doors open at 5:30 for food and beer. Mix and mingle until the pitches kick off at 6:00pm.
The three pitchers will have 5 minutes to share their unique stories - no exceptions. The pitchers will then have 5 minutes of Q&A from the crowd, and time to mingle so you'll get a chance to plug into their start-up momentum.
