The Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum Fireside Chats Startup Competition 

This Spring's Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum is centered around supporting the founder and our annual startup competition. To advance the competition program, this year we created three distinct and separate tracks for startup founders to compete in:

**General Business**
**Healthcare**
**Social Enterprise**

Each of our semi-final events will feature 12 startups teams that have been selected from a national pool of applicants. Each session will begin with a welcome address and Fireside Chat from 12-1:00pm, immediately followed by the startup team presentations from approximately 1-4:00pm. All Dartmouth community members, students, faculty, staff and alumni are welcome to tune in and watch via zoom.
