How Does Pitchfest Work?

Focused on Startup Founders

Like a community-based Shark Tank or Dragon's Den, Pitchfest is for startup founders to pitch their businesses and specific needs to an audience of public and private investors, service providers, business leaders, and community members.

Audience Ideas and Proposals

After each startup founder pitches, the audience asks questions and then offers ideas and proposals to the founder for ways they could help the startup grow bigger, faster, and more profitable.


Deadline to apply is August 31st, 2018.


Startup Company Criteria

  1. Seed stage technology companies
  2. A committed founder and team dedicated to the startup
  3. Not have raised more than $3 million in private financing
  4. Launched a unique product or service or released a marketable MVP; beyond the ideation phase
