Pitch Competition

We're giving 3 entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch their idea/startup! The pitch competition is designed to help local entrepreneurs with early stage companies (or even an idea) to gain exposure and experience when it matters most. The judges will be the audience who will vote live at the end of all three pitches. Each pitch is two minutes followed by a 4 minute Q&A.
