Registration
Open

Fighting it out for $10,000

A pitch battle of a unique flavor. 16 regional teams will fight it out to be the last entrepreneur standing. To add a bit of Fort Worth flare we have eliminated technology and each contestant will be pitching to a 360-degree audience armed with only their wit. To win: be crowd favorite after 3 battles.

Round 1 will be will be a 5 min pitch in 360 degrees with no supportive media. Two entrepreneurs will be given 5 minutes each to face off and the timer will be abrupt! Crowd favorite will determine the best pitch. No guidance, no rubric, simply their own interpretation.

Round 2 will be aggressive Q&A by a VIP panel. What is your total addressable market? How do you plan to build out your full sales team? How do you plan to incorporate high quality customer service? It's up to our panel and the entrepreneurs better be ready because the questions will be TOUGH! Like above, the crowd will vote on who they thought pitched best. No guidance, no rubric, simply their own interpretation.

Round 3 It is time for the elevator pitch to shine! The $10,000 first prize purse will come down to 4 entrepreneurs pitching in 1 minute or less to take home the money! 4 pitches, one winner, crowd favorite!
