Entrepreneur – one of the many words that describes someone who is motivated, talented, and is an inventor of goods or services. Northern Illinois University of Rockford will host the 7th annual Stateline FastPitch Competition on Wednesday, June 19th.
Despite the baseball analogy, local entrepreneurs who either have a business or have a good idea of what business they would like to have will be allowed 3 minutes to ‘pitch’ their idea to a panel. The goal is to successfully pitch your business or idea in 3 minutes or less (3 strikes and you are OUTTA there!).
Tomorrow local Rockford entrepreneurs will be able to meet and network with people who can help local business succeed. Cash prizes are awaiting the winners, and the initial presentations will be held starting at 3:30PM, with final presentations taking place at 5:30PM. The event is open to the public and all ages are welcome.
College and high school students are especially encouraged to partake in the presentations of their ideas.
