Fast Pitch Presentation

In Person
During GEW

What if you did a mash-up of “Shark Tank” and “American Idol”, except with entrepreneurs and supporters instead of vocalists and celebrities.

The Cumberland Business Incubator (CBI) plans to do just that when it hosts Fast Pitch, the Cumberland Plateau’s first crowdfunding event, on November 22nd.

After weeks of workshops and preparation, a number of entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs will pitch their business concepts to a live audience.  Those in the audience that RSVP for the event will distribute 500 “CBI Bucks,” to those entrepreneurs providing the Fast Pitch of their business concepts.  Recognition awards will be presented based on the voting with CBI Bucks.

“CBI’s Fast Pitch simulates a significant way in which early-stage entrepreneurs seek and obtain seed capital,” says Holly Hanson, Director of the Cumberland Business Incubator.  “During this event, the audience and promising businesses will learn about company strengths and weaknesses, their likelihood for commercial success, and how to improve their pitches.  Supporting entrepreneurs in this way is fundamental to the Cumberland Business Incubator’s mission.”
