Event Description

Introducing CrowdPitch, which can best be described as Shark Tank meets Business Banking. Looking for a business loan or to take your business to the next level? We're giving business owners the opportunity to practice pitching their business growth plan and receive valuable feedback from a panel of lending experts. Not only will this help you gain visibility in the business community but it will also let the community know what resources you need to grow your business (partners, services, funding, connections, talent). All in attendance will gain valuable tips and feedback on how they can best secure financing for their business. 

CrowdPitch is a fun and educational way to spend a lunchtime. Attendees are encouraged to stick around and network with other entrepreneurs, business owners, bankers, investors and business groups in the community.

Here's How it Works:

Presenting Companies
We'll select 3-4 companies to pitch their business goals to an audience of their peers and a panel of lenders. Coaching is available prior to the event to help them prepare their pitch. Presenters have 5 minutes to "pitch" and wow the audience before a 3 minute Q&A with the panel and crowd and 2 minutes of panel feedback.

Audience Participation
At the conclusion of the pitches, the audience and panel “invest” FUN money with the company whose pitch/plan impressed them the most. Each audience member receives $100 in Lendio chips, while panel members get $500.

The Winner
The company that receives the largest “investment” of Lendio chips from the audience and panel wins. The winning business will receive a valuable prize package of $5,000+ in business services from our sponsors.
