Outdoor Business Pitch Competition

October 9, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Outdoor Industry Business Pitch Competition Logo

Join us at the Outdoor Business Pitch Competition for drinks and refreshments while hearing from the up-and-coming businesses building the future of the outdoor industry in WNC.

The growing brands in our Waypoint Accelerator program – the East Coast’s first outdoor business accelerator – will star in the Outdoor Biz Pitch Competition, hosted by the Small Business and Development Center (SBTDC) and partner organizations.

A panel of judges – with representation from the outdoor industry, academic leaders, financial investors, and other service advisors – will score the competitors. The top applicant will walk away with a monetary prize to use toward growing their business. Event attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in voting, rounding out the panel with a crowd representative vote.

The Outdoor Biz Pitch Competition also serves as the opening reception for the 2019 Outdoor Economy Conference, which will be held the next day – October 10 – at the Crowne Plaza in Asheville.

The Outdoor Biz Pitch Competition is open to the public and includes dinner and a free beer.

Tickets are $15. Get yours at www.sbtdc.org/outdoorbizpitch.
