Are you ready to pitch? If you’ve got a great business idea, you could win $1,000 by participating in a pitch contest this week.
This Thursday, IdeaFame is coming back to Central Arkansas to give members of the community the chance to show off their best ideas for new businesses, products or services. Each contestant will have 60 seconds or less to pitch their idea to the audience and judges.
How does this work? It’s simple: contestants have to stand up in front of the audience and sell. There are no notes, slides or other helpful tools. Just the contestant, their idea and the audience.
There will be two winners for the IdeaFame Live! pitch contest. Each of the winners will receive $1,000 cash prizes. The first prize will be based on audience vote, while the judges will determine the second prize.
IdeaFame Live! will be held Thursday, April 18, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the University of Central Arkansas’ College of Business. Pitches start at 1:40 p.m.
