The Hudson Library & Historical Society will virtually hold its ninth annual “Pitch Night” competition on Tuesday, November 9 at 6:30 p.m. Seven finalists will be selected from the pool of online applications to pitch their business ideas to a panel of expert judges on Zoom. The winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize, and two runners-up will each receive a $2,500 cash prize.
Participants will need to apply for one of the 5-minute time slots available for this “shark tank” style program. Online applications will be accepted starting Monday, September 27, and must be received by Monday, October 18, 2021. The seven finalists chosen to pitch will be notified by Monday, October 25, 2021. Finalists will have until Friday, November 5 to create a 5-minute pitch video, which may include animations, simulations or a digital presentation. During the virtual live stream on November 9, prerecorded pitches will be shown, and a panel of judges will follow up with live questions.
This event is one of many planned for the City of Hudson’s celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), returning for the eighth consecutive year, November 8-14. “Pitch Night” and GEW 2021 are generously supported by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation.
