David B. Allen, a partner in the Corporate and Securities Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, will be serving as a judge during the "Dolphin Tank" pitch competition of the Founder Business Growth Bootcamp Graduation and Pitch Day presented by LIFT Development Entreprises, Inc.
During the event, founders will be presenting their plans for growing their small businesses into mid-market companies as part of their graduation from LIFT's 90-day 10-Module Bootcamp. The event is orchestrated to be a “Dolphin Tank” experience that allows judges to listen to the founder's presentation then offer constructive feedback and suggestions to help the company improve its growth plans. Then, judges will have an opportunity to select the small business that presents the best growth business plan, as it relates to revenues, profits and job creation. Judges will also have an opportunity to share feedback through both an interactive question and answer session after each presentation, as well as an electronic feedback and voting tool.
