Description

When: Thursday, October 25 at 6pm
Deadline to apply: Thursday, October 11 by 11:59pm

Do you have an idea for a business? SPARK EforAll Holyoke will be hosting a pitch contest open to All Ideas. Entrepreneurs will showcase their business ideas and eight will pitch to our panel of guest judges for a chance to give cash prizes.

All are welcome to attend, free of charge! If you ever joined SPARK for Holyoke Soup, you're going to LOVE this new event that brings pitch contests to a whole new level!

Our pitch contests are a great place to present your business idea, build experience presenting, and get valuable feedback from industry-expert judges. You might even win some money to help you get started! Ideas in all stages are welcome.

The pitch will have a 2 1/2-minute time limit, and we will host a workshop in advance of the event if you want some tips on how to organize your 2 1/2-minute pitch.

Need a few tips on pitching your idea? We’re hosting an optional pitch contest workshop on Thursday, October 18 at 6pm. Heads up! This workshop date is after pitch contest applications are due, so if you’re interested in pitching, ensure you’ve applied before the pitch contest deadline of October 11, 2018.

Prizes for the winners, who will be chosen by a panel of judges, are:
$1,000 for the Grand Prize winner
$750 for Second Place
$500 for Third Place
$500 for the Fan Favorite (audience votes via text messaging!)
