Stay up to-date by following our Facebook Page.

Note: the venue changes for each competition.

Some things to consider before applying:

  • 757Pitch is specifically looking for scalable venture ideas, as opposed to lifestyle businesses. While the latter are super important to a vibrant local/regional economy, they’re not the target for this competition.
  • You don’t need a full-fledged business plan, but your pitch must convince the judges that you’re serious and that you’ve validated key assumptions in your business model with a clear path to profitability.
  • You’ll be pitching in front of a live audience, a panel of local business leaders, and a video of your pitch will be uploaded to YouTube.
