Silicon Couloir’s 7th Annual Pitch Day will be held on Thursday, August 9th from 4-7 PM at the Center for the Arts in Jackson, WY. Pitch Day is a chance to learn about the latest up-and-coming companies in the Teton region. This year our presenters include:

  • A biotech company working on slowing the advance of Parkinson's Disease

  • A beauty products tech company (think “Pinterest meets the Rx pad”)

  • A software company designed for business owners hiring frontline staff

  • A clothing company bringing eco-friendly fabrics to the infant and toddler market

  • A company designing consumer products to make life easier and more organized

  • A travel app company connecting travelers to stories

 

We are pleased to announce the prizes for this year’s winning presenters.

 

Panelist Choice Award: $5,000

This award is given to the company that our experienced, entrepreneur judges determine has (1) the most compelling business idea, (2) the best chance for business success, (3) the highest likelihood of getting funded, and (4) the strongest presentation.

 

Audience Choice Award: $2500

This award is given to the company who “wows” the audience with their presentation and company.

 

Community Caretaker Award: Invitation to join the TEAMS Program

New this year, the Community Caretaker Award goes to the entrepreneur or venture who best embodies the mission and core values of Silicon Couloir. The winner will have the opportunity to participate in the full launch of TEAMS, our new mentoring program.

The impacts of Pitch Day on our entrepreneurial community are many. Pitch Day connects entrepreneurs in our community with opportunities to raise capital by offering a platform to gain experience and valuable feedback. Pitch Day inspires others in the audience to begin their own journey. Additionally, our community becomes stronger when more experienced members of our entrepreneurial community contribute their knowledge to help others along their entrepreneurial path.

Pitch Day is free to attend and open to the public. Please register here. Company presentations will be followed by a reception in the lobby.

Pitch Day is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Central Wyoming College and BELAY.
