Entrepreneurs are invited to tryout their best pitches at the Chicagoland FAST PITCH Competition on Monday, February 26, 2007. At the competition, entrepreneurs will deliver pitches of three minutes or less for a chance to win a prize of $ 5,000. A panel of judges will offer feedback to the entrepreneur, and select a winner in each of 5 categories: Information Technology, Business Products and Services, Life Sciences, Retail and Consumer Products, and Open Competition. The five finalists will then present to the general audience, and the champion will be chosen by audience vote. Find more information and register for the competition here.
This competition kicks off Chicago’s celebration of Entrepreneurship Week 2007, a national event sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation. FAST PITCH is co-sponsored by DePaul University, the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center, Northwestern University, University of Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology, the Illinois Business & Investors Forum, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
