FastPitch

The second annual Rock/Walworth FastPitch Competition is your opportunity to prove the potential of your business idea, meet people who can help you succeed, and even win startup funds! Competitors will have three minutes to knock it out of the park before a panel of judges from the business and investment community.

Event Details

When: Wednesday, October 2, 2013
 
Agenda: Details to follow.

Where: Whitewater University Innovation Center
1221 Innovation Drive
Whitewater, WI 53190
Directions

Who: Passionate entrepreneurs in all phases of business (including startup, pre-startup, or idea stages) are invited.

Why: Participants are eligible to win startup funds and other prizes, but the true value of the competition lies in the invaluable feedback, experience, and exposure to be gained.
   
 
 Please check back for rules and eligibility requirements.

 


We are partnering with four neighboring counties in WI and IL, which translates into more opportunities for competing. This offers the opportunity to compete in three separate competitions (but you can only win a prize once).
