TiE Pittsburgh’s mission is to foster entrepreneurship through mentoring to positively affect the growth and prosperity of our region. For early stage entrepreneurs, getting a new company off the ground and into the market is an exciting but often daunting challenge. TiE Pittsburgh is presenting its 6th annual innovative competition for entrepreneurs. Ten finalists will be selected by our committee to participate at our event. Each finalist will have a showcase table and will present a three minute pitch to the audience and panel of judges. The judges may ask questions for two additional minutes.
The top three companies will be measured on their presentation content & style, responses to questioning, and the showcase of their product. The top three companies will receive awards: First place – $5,000; Second Place – $3,000; Third Place – $2,000 to promote and cultivate their start-ups. Our judges and mentor panel will be comprised of TiE-Pittsburgh Charter Members and prominent business leaders.
