DETAILS: This is the fourth annual QuadTank Pitch Competition – an exciting new addition to the Quad County Business Summit. The winning individual or team this year will be awarded a $6,750 cash prize to support implementation of their business plans. At the end of the Quad County Business Summit, the winner will be chosen by a panel of judges.
1) Participating individuals or teams schedule a meeting with a Central Virginia Small Business Development Center (CV SBDC) advisor anytime before September 16th to apply and discuss the project for which funding is being sought. Meetings will be scheduled at times convenient for the applicant(s). Meetings are scheduled by CV SBDC’s Client Services Coordinator, Mesa McMurtrey via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 434-295-8198.

Participants may use PowerPoint, Canva, GoogleSlides or other visual aids, or props during their pitch. Final pitch visuals should be submitted to QuadTank@cvsbdc.org 48 hours prior to presentation, as a backup, in case there are issues with technology.
