Crowd Pitch Event
Where Shark Tank Meets Business Banking
Introducing Lendio's CrowdPitch event, which can best be described as Shark Tank meets Business Banking. Looking for a business loan or to take your business to the next level? We're giving business owners the opportunity to practice pitching their business growth plan and receive valuable feedback from the crowd and a panel of bankers. Not only will this help you gain visibility in the business community but it will also let the community know what resources you need to take your business to the next level (partners, services, funding, connections, talent).
CrowdPitch is free to apply, attend, and present at. FREE food and drinks will be provided. This event will be a fun and educational way to spend a lunch period. Attendees are encouraged to stick around and network with other entrepreneurs, business owners, bankers, investors and business groups in the community. Please RSVP today to reserve your spot!
Presenting Companies - We'll select 3 companies to present their business goals to an audience of their peers and a panel of lenders. Free online coaching is available prior to the event to help them prepare their pitch. Presenters have 5 minutes to "pitch" and wow the audience before a 3 minute Q&A from the crowd and panel feedback.
Audience Participation - At the conclusion of the pitches, the audience and panel “invest” FUN money with the company that impressed them the most. Each audience member receives $100 in Lendio bucks, while panel members get $500.
The Winner - The company who receives the largest “investment” of Lendio bucks from the audience and panel wins.The winning business will receive a $3,000 prize package of business services from our sponsors.
