What can you expect at Pitch ‘N Pint?
This Shark Tank-style showcase will pit Arkansas entrepreneurs in a real-time business pitch competition. Each competitor will have 60 seconds to deliver their best pitch to a crowd that includes investors, judges and 200 community members.
The entrepreneurs will be judged by both the judges and the audience. The crowd will vote using state-of-the-art, text-your-vote technology.
There’s a lot riding on this competition, too. In total, there is $6,850 in cash prizes on the line.
The top prize is a $5,000 seed capital award for the Judges’ Choice Winner. The audience winners will receive $1,000, $500 and $250 for first place, second place and third place, respectively.
And there’s a reason you should wear an ugly sweater. There is also an Ugly Sweater Award, and the audience can participate. The person wearing the ugliest sweater will receive $100.
Pitch ‘N Pint will be held Tuesday, Dec. 10, from 6-8 p.m., at South on Main in Little Rock.
Each ticket includes two drink tickets and appetizers.
