Entrepreneurs: do not support the New England Venture Summit charging startups to present

Startups: Do not support events like this $1,500 to present New
England Venture Summit.

Take a moment to tell them that you don’t agree with them charging
startups and together we can crack the “pay to play” virus!

Note: if they wanted to charge you for a ticket, well, maybe…. but
to present? that’s not cool.
