WHAT IT IS

Lendio North Florida and Santa Fe IPDC’s CrowdPitch competition, can best be described as Shark Tank meets Business Lending. 3 companies pitch their operating business and growth plan to a panel of 6 business and lending experts. Panelists will ask tough questions and provide actionable feedback for founders to improve their business and fundability. Everyone votes for the best pitch. The winner takes home the grand prize.

[APPLY to PITCH]

The Vote
The audience and panel “invest” FUN money with the company whose pitch/plan impressed them the most.

The Winner
The company who receives the largest “investment” of FUN money from the audience and panel wins a valuable prize package of $10,000+ in business services from our sponsors.
