Description

Do you have a great business idea?

Pitch your idea to a panel of judges for your chance to win $1000!

The WV Hive Network, in partnership with TechConnect WV, is excited to announce the 5th of the different business idea competition series encompassing twelve counties in southern West Virginia. The upcoming competition, to be held in Summersville, WV, is for businesses and residents of Nicholas, Braxton, Fayette, Webster, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Summers, Monroe, Raleigh, Mercer, Wyoming, and McDowell Counties. The deadline to submit an application is midnight, May 31st.

Please note: ONLY those with new business ideas or new business start-ups less than three years in operation are eligible to apply. You must either have a business or live in Nicholas, Braxton, Fayette, Webster, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Summers, Monroe, Raleigh, Mercer, Wyoming, or McDowell County to apply. You DO NOT need to be a WV Hive client to apply. Past Pitch Southern WV winners are not eligible to compete.


Applications will be evaluated by a team of reviewers, with the top applicants chosen to pitch their unique idea or product in-person at Summersville Arena & Conference Center in Summersville on June 17, 2019.

To be considered, fill out and submit an application at https://wvhive.com/pitch/ no later than midnight May 31, 2019. If your idea or product is chosen as one of the successful applicants, you will have approximately one week to work on the development of your pitch for your idea or product, with the help 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.

A grand prize winner will be awarded $1,000 to use towards growing their idea or product into a business. Second and third place winners will receive smaller awards.

Audience members will also get a chance to vote for their favorite!

We hope to see you there!
