Tonight I attended Pitch Fest at the Big Idea Labs in Bellingham, and I was one of two winners of the pitch competition.
Pitch Fest is like a mini Shark Tank where you present up to a 3 minute pitch, followed by 3 minutes of questions from the 4 judges. However the difference between this and with Shark Tank is that with Shark Tank there are investors willing to buy into your idea. At Pitch Fest you get feedback on your pitch.
There were 9 presentations tonight for some very interesting ideas.
There were two winners announced tonight, my pitch was chosen as a winning pitch, and second winner was Ann who presented here product called TurdeeTote, which is a product for picking up your dogs poop when you are taking them for a walk. The Turdee Tote looks like a great product for people who walk their dogs.
My business pitch, if you missed it won’t be unveiled again until the pitches start for the startup weekend tomorrow night.
One of the prizes for winning the pitch fest tonight was a ticket to attend the Bellingham Startup Weekend, which I have already purchased a ticket for. That leaves me with an extra ticket for the Startup Weekend. If you would like to attend the startup weekend, and you want to support my pitch let me know and I will give you my extra ticket to Startup weekend.
