People in southern West Virginia can pitch their business ideas for cash and technical assistance.
The Pitch Southern West Virginia Business Idea Contest is open to startups or new businesses up to three years old. WVU Tech students are also eligible to pitch their ideas.
This is a newly announced partnership initiative between WVU Tech, West Virginia Hive and WVU Tech Launch Lab.
“There’s a lot of demand for new products,” said Lab Director Diana Woods. “Innovation is about changing existing ideas little by little as times and things change. We need to improve them a little bit.”
Clients of the West Virginia Hive are also eligible. New businesses in 12 counties – Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas, Summers, Braxton, Webster, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Monroe, Mercer, Wyoming and McDowell – can also pitch their ideas.
Applications close at midnight on Monday, August 15th. Top finishers will be invited to enter the live competition on September 13, 2022 from 6:00 pm to his 8:00 pm at his WVU Tech campus in Beckley.
The winner will receive $2,000.
