SCORE Savannah presented the 3rd annual "BizPitch Savannah" entrepreneurial competition on November 6, 2020.
"This is our kinder, gentler version of Shark Tank. It was a great success despite our having to pivot to a more virtual approach to the event." - Michael Siegel, Chapter Chair
Eight aspiring local entrepreneurs were chosen to pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges. Three of the finalists were chosen as winners. Each received cash and free professional services valued at over $13,000 to help them launch and grow their new businesses. I have attached a photo of the winners.
You can see all eight finalists and their pitches by going to bizpitchsavannah.com.
The event received a lot of great coverage in the media. TV, radio, newspapers, news websites and more. Here are links to some of them:
We are very proud of this event. All three of last year's winners have launched their businesses. Two of the three 2020 winners have already launched and the third will launch soon. And, in addition to promoting entrepreneurism in our community, the event has allowed us to establish close relationships with a long list of sponsors and donors who share our dedication to our small business community.
