The Freehold Borough Pitch Event will take place on September 29, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Court Street School Education Community Center, located at 140 Court Street, Freehold, NJ.
This event, similar to “Shark Tank,” focuses on the pitch to help launch and grow local businesses and is a perfect way to get valuable advice and mentoring. The public is invited to share the excitement as the most promising companies will be invited to pitch before a panel of investors and lenders to compete for cash and services essential to small business owners. No experience is necessary, but registration is required.
This community event kicks off the Freehold Borough Innovative Accelerator Program, where local entrepreneurs and startup businesses are invited to pitch their business ideas to an audience and panel of judges.
The top 10 finalists from the Freehold Borough Pitch Event will be accepted into an accelerator cohort.
The participants will engage in a 15-week program. The program will require each to complete the Entrepreneurship Certification Program and Digital Blueprint Certificate programs and participate in bimonthly mentorship forums and specialty events.
Interested participants can start by submitting a brief summary of their business idea. Or just come to check out the hottest innovative ideas on the Jersey shore and join the fun rooting for your favorite presenter!
There is no fee for the pitch event. Participants must be Freehold town residents and may present in Spanish or English.
The Freehold Borough Pitch Event is also dedicated to giving entrepreneurs from Minority groups or diverse backgrounds the opportunity to get sponsorship and opportunity. Applicants from these underrepresented communities will be prioritized.
