The online C-level auction includes tech leadership from Google, TD Ameritrade, Proxibid and Dundee Venture Capital.
Bidding is now open for AIM’s online C-level auction, and several startup community executives are on the list. Many of the individuals have also included extra perks to drive interest. According to AIM’s web site, Mark Hasebroock, Founder of Dundee Venture Capital, is offering the opportunity to “pitch your company, drink beer, and play bags with Mark to get tips on how to pitch to a VC and get primary consideration for the 2016 Straight Shot class.”
The auction is part of AIM’s annual Tech Celebration event to be held on October 29th at the Holland Center. The event is meant to highlight the Greater Omaha tech community.
The money raised from the online auction will go towards AIM’s Youth in IT initiatives. For more information about what AIM is working on, see their recently blog post “Why you should support AIM’s C-Level Auction”
