How It Works

  • • People with business ideas, startup companies, or established companies exploring new products 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 & 5 slides to pitch to the judges and the audience of potential investors and the community
  • • The judges select the winners and prizes are awarded.
  • • Before and after the pitches, the community enjoys food and beverages and networks.
