How to Participate

Show up between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a 90 second (about 1 and a half minutes) pitch. We will record you for our judges to review and be in touch with the winners!

It should include:

  • A quick description of your business idea.
  • Who your customers are.
  • What value your business would provide to your customers.
  • Why do you believe it will be successful?

Judges will watch all the pitches and award the *Top 15* pitches!
