Silicon Couloir accepting Pitch Day 2019 venture applications


Mark your calendar for Silicon Couloir’s 8th Annual Pitch Day, our signature event of the year.  Held at the Center for the Arts in Jackson, Wyoming on September 5th from 4-7 PM, Pitch Day features local entrepreneurs showcasing their businesses to a large and interested audience of over 250 attendees.  Cash prizes will be awarded in a number of categories.

Free to attend and open to the public, Pitch Day stars a select group of innovative and creative companies developing in the Teton region.  This event supports local entrepreneurs to showcase and promote their business or idea.

Selected entrepreneurs will have three coaching sessions with a team of successful and experienced business experts leading up to the main event.  Coaching is a critical feature of the program, as it helps entrepreneurs hone their delivery and synthesize the information that is most likely to interest attendees.  

Pitch Day is a celebration of the highly successful entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Tetons. We hope to inspire audience members and others in our community to dream up or begin their own entrepreneurial journey.
