Description

Do you have a unique or innovative idea or product?

The WV Hive Network, in partnership with TechConnect WV, is excited to announce the 3rd of five different idea and business competitions encompassing twelve counties in southern West Virginia. The upcoming competition, to be held in Mt. Hope, WV, is for residents of Fayette, Raleigh, Wyoming, McDowell, and Mercer Counties.* The deadline to submit an application is midnight, January 22nd. Other locations and dates will be announced soon.

Please note: ONLY those with new business ideas or new business start-ups less than three 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 the top applicants chosen to pitch their unique idea or product in-person at the J.W. & Hazel Ruby Welcome Center in Mt. Hope on February 12, 2019.

To be considered, fill out and submit an application at https://wvhive.com/pitch/ no later than midnight January 22, 2019. If your idea or product is chosen as one of the successful applicants, you will work have two weeks to create a business plan summary and pitch for your idea or product with the aid of the WV Hive.

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

The presentation will be followed with a brief question and answer period with the judges.
