Event description

Description

Do you have a unique or innovative idea or product?

The WV Hive Network, in partnership with TechConnect WV, will be conducting five different competitions encompassing twelve counties in southern West Virginia. The first competition, to be held in Beckley, WV, is for residents of Raleigh, Mercer, McDowell, and Wyoming Counties. Other locations and dates will be announced soon.*

Please note: ONLY those with new business ideas or new business start-ups less than two years in operation are eligible to apply. You DO NOT need to be a WV Hive client to apply.

Applications will be evaluated by a team of reviewers, with six applicants chosen to pitch their unique idea or product in-person at the Raleigh Playhouse & Theatre in Beckley on September 18th, 2018.

To be considered, please fill out and submit an application at https://wvhive.com/pitch/, no later than midnight August 22, 2018.

If your idea or product is chosen as one of the six successful applicants, you will have two weeks to work one-on-one with a WV Hive Business Advisor to create a business plan summary and pitch for your idea or product.

During the competition, you will have five minutes to present your idea or product to a panel of five judges and explain what is innovative about your idea and how it will make a difference to residents of southern WV.

A grand prize winner will be awarded $1,000 to use towards growing their idea or product into a business. Other prizes will be provided by the community. 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive smaller awards.

*Other tentative locations include: Summersville, Fayetteville, Hinton, and Lewisburg.
