Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

July 16, 2019 - Got an idea for a unique, exciting new product or service? Then consider entering Savannah SCORE’s “BizPitch Savannah™ 2019" entrepreneurial competition. A kinder, gentler version of TV’s “Shark Tank”, aspiring Savannah area entrepreneurs will be able to pitch their new business ideas to a panel of judges for the chance to win over $10,000 in cash and professional business services to help launch their new business.

Proposed businesses must be new start-ups or, if you have an existing business, you must have obtained your Savannah/Chatham County business license after March 1, 2018. Winners must locate and operate their business within Chatham County and launch by January 1, 2021. Applicants must be at least 18 years old.

Complete Rules and the Online Application are available at http://bizpitchsavannah.com. Applications will be accepted through midnight, July 29, 2019, with a $25 non-refundable application fee payable at the time of submission.

Eight finalists will be chosen to pitch their business ideas to the panel of judges at Savannah SCORE’s “BizPitch Savannah™ 2019” event on Friday, Sept. 6, from 4-6:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Coastal Georgia Center at 305 Fahm Street, Savannah. It will be free and open to the public.

The five judges are:

  • Jen Bonnett, VP of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Savannah Economic Development Authority, and Executive Director, The Creative Coast
  • Carl Biathrow, Business Development Coordinator, City of Savannah Office of Business Opportunity
  • Miriam Rittmeyer, MD, Ph.D., MPH, CEO, MUNNA® and President, Phalarope.org
