> Welcome to Open Court
Have a new service or product idea for your business, but not quite sure how to take it to the next level? Now you have the opportunity to pitch your business concept in a professional setting to a team of experienced venture capitalists, business consultants and business leaders to get the feedback you need to move forward.
Open Court is a program for entrepreneurs in Northeastern Pennsylvania ready to take your business to the next level. Drawing upon the “Open Court” basketball concept where anyone can get a chance to play against the winning team if they show up, Open Court gives you access to top-tier professional advice if you have the courage to complete an application and show up with your pre-approved executive business plan.
Open Court is not for the faint of heart, but it is your opportunity to test the merit of your business plan with professionals and find out what your next steps should be to get to market. Whether your business is financial or other services, an information or manufacturing technology with a new product for business or consumers…all you need to do is step up, bring your best game to Open Court, and learn how to advance to the next level.
You can check out our application process under How To Apply. Open Court sessions are held on a regular basis at the newly renovated Victory Firehouse in Bethlehem, PA. There is no charge to participate in the Open Court presentation and review session, but a completed application and executive business plan summary must be submitted and pre-approved before you can be considered for participation.
