In a few weeks, five Ventures entrepreneurs will take to the stage at Columbia City Theater.
There, they will pitch their small business to a panel of judges and the community. These are the contestants of InnoVentures, our annual pitch contest and fundraiser.
By the night of March 28th, they will have spent dozens of hours crafting their pitch, practicing at pitch clinics with their fellow contestants and Business Coach volunteers, and incorporating the judges’ feedback. After competing through three rounds of this bracket-style competition and achieving the highest scores, they’ve made it to the InnoVentures finals. Now, these five finalists have a chance to compete and win cash and other prizes to grow their small businesses!
InnoVentures is not just a fundraiser, but also a Ventures program to help incubate small businesses by giving contestants the invaluable opportunity to refine their business skills, practice public speaking, and gain brand exposure.
It requires a lot of time and financial resources to organize this three-month competition and our final event at the Columbia City Theater.
We simply couldn’t do it without our amazing 2019 InnoVentures sponsors.
Those sponsors enable us to offer coaching for our business owners as they prepare to pitch their businesses and allow the community to join us at the exciting finals on March 28th.
On behalf of the Ventures team, thank you, InnoVentures sponsors, for investing in local small businesses and enriching our community!
