Entrepreneur Competition Coming to Fremont
Are you sitting on an idea for a business or product? Been wondering what to do and how to start? Wonder no more! Coming to Fremont on May 8th, 2019 is an entrepreneurial pitch competition – Only for those who live in Newaygo, Oceana or Lake Counties!
Pitch North will provide a platform for aspiring entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges with a chance at winning over $9,000 in cash and prizes.
Entrepreneurship is critical to the success of rural communities. When people start and grow businesses, they contribute to the economic diversity of their area. These unique local businesses become what differentiates a particular place. All age groups turn to entrepreneurship, from baby boomers looking to supplement retirement or millennials looking for an option outside the traditional 9-5.
Participating in a pitch competition forces an entrepreneur to take a deeper dive into their business model and explain their product or service in a passionate and concise manner. Whether the idea is a Fly Fishing Guide service on the Muskegon River, a niche restaurant in Baldwin, or a Yoga Studio in New Era, it has the potential of positively impacting the community of over 84,000 people who live in the rural counties of Oceana, Newaygo and Lake.
If you’d like to enter your idea, act fast! Pitch submissions are accepted through April 10th at 11:59 pm. A review committee will score submissions and five finalists will be chosen to present their pitches live on May 8th. Prizes will be given out to the top three finalists.
