Event description

Description

Northern Lakes Economic Alliance (NLEA) in partnership with the Cheboygan Entrepreneurial Team (E-Team) will host a Business Pitch Night Competition at the Cheboygan Opera House on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 beginning at 7 pm when entrepreneurs can “pitch” their business ideas to a panel of judges for prize money. Think of it as a mini "Shark Tank" for northern Michigan. The winner will receive $10,000, second place will receive $3000 and third place will receive $1500, along with a $500 People’s Choice award. First and second place winners will advance to the Grand Event which will take place at North Central Michigan College on November 14 at 5:30 p.m. with the opportunity to win up to $10,000.

Pitchers will have four minutes on the stage of the Opera House to state their business case with 2 minutes worth of questions from the judges.

The event is open to the public along with angel and capital investors.
