Competition extends deadline for entries. A chance to bring your idea to fruition.
Pitch North, Newaygo County’s first-ever entrepreneurial pitching competition, has extended the pitch submission deadline to May 8th at 11:59 pm. The event, hosted in person on June 14th, will award over $12,000 in cash & prizes to the five finalists.
“Supporting our homegrown businesses is crucial to the success of our rural communities,” said Julie Burrell, Economic Development Director for Newaygo County. “Pitch North has supported 15 local businesses to date, and we are so excited to help five more this year. However, you can’t win if you don’t enter!”
