The event will begin on Friday, March 31st at 6pm-830pm at the Gravity Center, as individuals pitch their ideas for businesses they'd like to explore starting. You don't have to have an idea to take part in the weekend, either! This is for anyone who wants to:
* Validate a business idea
* Network with others
* Learn marketing and sales techniques for new startups
* Practice a business pitch
A few of the ideas pitched on Friday night will be selected by a panel of judges to give time and resources to throughout the rest of the weekend. If your idea wasn't chosen, you're encouraged to stay and be on a team working on an idea!
On Saturday, you'll start at 830am with breakfast and begin team work on your idea. There will be mentors and all of the supplies you need to take you idea to market!
On Sunday at 6pm at the new Power House venue, located beside the Rock Hill Sports and Events Center, we invite the public out to hear your business pitch and win a prize package of valuable services for your business launch. There is no charge to attend the final night pitch event. Food and drinks will be provided by the Power Plant vendors.
Cost to participate: $50 per adult, $25 per student
The cost includes Friday night drinks and appetizers, Saturday continental breakfast, lunch and snacks and Sunday continental breakfast.
We will also provide office supplies and team materials througout the weekend.
