How It Works

  • Individuals with business ideas, startup companies, or even established companies exploring new products may apply.
  • A selection committee reviews the applications, interviews a set of semi-finalists, then selects the final set of teams to pitch.
  • The teams get coaching to help them prepare their pitches.
  • At the event, each team gets 5 minutes to pitch to the judges and the audience of potential investors and community members
  • The judges select the winners and prizes are awarded.
  • Before and after the pitches, the community enjoys local cuisine, beverages, and networking.
