Description

The Downtown Startup Finals will be hosted at the thINCubator on October 4th!
The thINCubator teamed up with The Community Foundation to bring you the Finals of the Downtown Startup Challenge where 3 local entrepreneurs will pitch their downtown business plans for a panel of judges and compete for $30,000 in seed funding. These teams have been working all summer to put together plans to build a better downtown and they're excited to share their ideas with our attendees! Don't miss it!

We are "MESH-ing" from 5-6pm and then we will begin pitches & awards. Come meet other local entrepreneurs and grow your personal network.
So how does this work?
First off, registration is required! Then, come to the new thINC space, have some light food and drinks and mingle with folks who want to move there ideas forward, brainstorm, solve problems, and MESH. After mingling, we'll showcase the Downtown startups that have roots right here in upstate NY to see their real-time progress in a rapid-fire pitch for the Community Foundation's Downtown Startup Challenge with finalists competing for $30,000!

This event also serves as the thINCubator's last and biggest MESH event of 2017! Not familiar with MESH events?
The thINCubator hosts 4 MESH events each year to foster Creative Collisions between the Makers, Entrepreneurs, Students & Hackers across upstate NY. We’re helping to spark a community of innovators who want to plant ideas, cross-pollinate, and grow companies across our region.

If you have an interest in pursuing your own business, collaborating with others, watching a live pitch day or just taking the next steps in helping to create a startup ecosystem, this event is for you.

We can't wait to see you there!
