Come show us what you've got, Rim Country, Arizona!
Do you have a “moonshot” idea or an existing business you’d like to expand? Or even just a product or business idea you've scribbled down on a napkin?
If you answered YES, please join us for the Rim Country (Payson area) Arizona Pioneer Pitch competition for entrepreneurs (aka, a showcase like you see on ABC's Shark Tank)! Participants will be competing for CASH PRIZES and more. In addition, you'll get feedback from top industry experts and exposure for your business or product.
Also, check out the pre-competition workshops (led by the Small Business Development Center) that will help you prepare for the competition.
HOW TO APPLY
To apply, candidates must submit an online application (below). Applicants will need to explain their start-up idea, what they feel their unique selling proposition is, and why their product is better than what is already on the market.
CASH PRIZES & FREE SERVICES
The winner of the Rim Country Pioneer Pitch will go on to compete in our state-wide competition for a $10,000 cash prize. The event, which also honors successful Moonshot entrepreneurs, will be held in Flagstaff at Little America Hotel on June 17, 2022.
