Pitchfest

October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In the Co-op Connections Building

Bring your cellphone and vote for your favorite pitch! Young artists, innovators, and entrepreneurs in Whatcom County will pitch their idea for a program that generates inclusion and cooperation in the community.

The winning proposal will be awarded $1,000.

How will it work?

1. Five groups will each give a 3-minute pitch about their projects.
2. The audience will select three finalists to move to the next round.
3. Finalists will have up to 5 minutes for a followup pitch and 5 minutes for Q&A.
4. A panel of community judges will select the winning pitch.

Here is a sneak peek at the five pitches:
