In celebration of the contributions WNC is making in the growth of the industry, the Small Business and Development Center (SBTDC) and partnering organizations including Mountain BizWorks are hosting the first Outdoor Biz Pitch Competition to offer a space for established outdoor companies to compete for monetary prizes to grow their business. This public event will be held on September 19, 2018 at Highland Brewing in Asheville, NC.
The event will consist of pitches from the finalist applicants, followed by Q&As. Competitors will be scored and the top applicant will walk away with a monetary prize to use toward growing their business. The judges panel includes representation from the outdoor industry, academic leaders, financial investors, and other service advisors. Event attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in voting, rounding out the panel with a crowd representative vote.
Come join us to for drinks and refreshments while hearing from the up and coming businesses building the future of the outdoor industry in WNC.
