ACS/NESACS sponsoring small chemical business pitch/investment competition

From Jennifer Maclachlan (analytical chemist, and part of the ACS Small Business Division), a very interesting idea:
ACS ENTREPRENEURIAL RESOURCES CENTER SHOWCASE EAST 
The  ACS - in cooperation with The Northeastern Section of the  American Chemical Society, the ACS Small Chemical Businesses Division, and the Nova Biomedical Corporation - is sponsoring a one-day business competition with a cash prize for the  winning pitch delivered to investors and potential commercial partners on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at the headquarters of Nova Biomedical Corporation at 200 Prospect Street, Waltham MA, 02454. 
Entrepreneurial candidates must be ACS members and have an early-stage chemistry based startup that is investor ready. 
To qualify for participation in this business competition, candidates must complete our investor readiness survey. Access the survey  here. Survey closes January 20, 2014. Note: There are only 20 slots available. Candidates who are selected for participation will  work with an assigned mentor to develop a winning pitch.
Details are here, here and here. It seems to me that this is one of those things where you should think about entering, even if you're not sure you're ready. Best wishes!
