Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

August 1, 2018 - Got an idea for a unique exciting new product or service? Then consider the new “BizPitch Savannah™” entrepreneurial competition, a kinder, gentler version of TV’s “Shark Tank.” It’s a chance to pitch your idea to a panel of judges with the potential to win $2500 in cash and a package of professional start-up business services worth an estimated $7,500. Time Running Short. Get Started Now.

This can either be a new start up or, if you have an existing business, you must have obtained your Savannah-Chatham business license after March 1, 2017. You must be at least 18 years old. Applications will be accepted through midnight, August 8, with a $25 non-refundable application fee payable at the time of submission.

Eight finalists will be announced on Aug. 14, and will make their pitches to a panel of judges at the “BizPitch Savannah™” event on Friday, Sept. 7, from 4-6:30 p.m. at The Creative Coast, 2222 Bull St.

The five judges are Jesse Cole, entrepreneur and owner, The Savannah Bananas; Jen Bonnett, vice president of innovation and entrepreneurship for the Savannah Economic Development Authority and executive director of The Creative Coast; Susan Speros, founder and president of Speros Business Technology Solutions; Sheree Darien, community development loan officer, Small Business Assistance Corporation; and a certified Savannah SCORE Business Mentor.

Three winners will receive the cash and services.

Competition rules and application forms are available at http://bizpitchsavannah.com.
