Michelle Rowe Hallsten, shareholder of Greenberg Traurig, is a sponsor of StartupSac's Warm-Up Pitch. StartupSac Warm-Up Pitch is an opportunity for near-investment-ready startups in the Sacramento region to prepare for presenting to investors. Five companies with a working MVP and some demonstrated traction, will compete for a prize package in front of a panel of judges and an audience of investors, mentors, and other key players in the Sacramento startup ecosystem. A First Place, Second Place and Audience Choice will be selected and awarded non-cash prize packages of services that will help them advance their company. Following the presentations, there will be a reception with appetizers and adult beverages. This will be a chance to meet the founders one-on-one and help the community to groom them for future investment.
