Sponsors are vital to NCN events:

    A mix of Shark Tank and pitch slams, with elements of business school and speed dating thrown in, NCN events provide the most consistent model for investors to find their next investment opportunity. Using connections within the natural products industry, and relationships with Natural Products Expos and SupplySide West, NCN collects applications from the most promising brands looking for growth opportunities, then selects 15-25 to present at each event. For each investor meeting, the presenting companies deliver a 10-minute pitch about their product or service, sales and growth trajectories, and investment and partnership needs, and all attendees are provided with comprehensive business plans for each company. Afterwards attendees can meet with those companies that sparked their interest in one-on-one meetings scheduled on site.

    Become a sponsor of NCN Investor Meetings to reach this group of emerging brands and investors that want to grow with them.
