Do you have a scalable business model that can reach high growth rates over time? Do you have a product or idea that can transform into a wide variety of products or a service that is specific to certain industries or markets? Is the product at an early stage and currently being tested as the go-to market strategy and sales channels are being fine-tuned? Then the Chippewa Valley HATCH Pitch Competition is for you! CCEDC partnered with CoLab and other sponsors to gather regional investors at the River Prairie Center in celebration of Startup Chippewa Valley Week.

They are looking for exceptional teams and products that fit their investment criteria so they can make a return on their investment. Local investors are a key part of the Chippewa Valley entrepreneurial ecosystem and might be able to provide the capital that your startup needs. As an entrepreneur, you will have five minutes to pitch your idea to a panel of judges and a live audience. Spectators will have a chance to evaluate and vote (using for their favorite pitch alongside the judges. Beyond the reward, this is an opportunity for you to share your fresh and creative business idea to supportive investors, businesses, and community members! You could be flying high with a reward of over $3,000—that’s a lot of honey!
