Pitch Night

Thursday, April 20 

7:00pm - 8:30pm

The CODE Building

Ten local entrepreneurs pitch to a live audience willing to pledge funds to their favorite contestant. It’s a three minute chance to share your vision with the community and inspire the crowd to action!

This is a crowdfunded pitch! This is your chance to reach out to friends, family, colleagues and supporters and get their help.

Each finalist has the opportunity to raise funds both before and during the pitch night. ALL donations intended for a startup or project will go to that startup! Before the pitch night, there will be a donation portal open to contribute toward a project, and at the pitch night, the audience can purchase votes to support the projects that most inspire them. ALL monies intended for a startup will go to that startup. 

In addition to the crowdfunded support, the Community Investment Collaborate (CIC) will sponsor a grand prize winner to receive a max $5,000. Winner will be selected by a panel of judges. Additional prizes and support services from CIC and other local business owners may also be awarded.

“For me, Tom Tom is not a typical pitch competition. It’s not about how successful your business is, but about the community you create with your business.  I had a great time sharing my entrepreneurial journey with the audience, feeling their energy and allowing them to feel mine as I shared my story.  Prepping with CIC and participating in Tom Tom not only electrified my confidence, but it gave me an extra push to keep dreaming and keep working to build my business!"

- Cynthia Kankeu, Kank's Store, Winner of the Grand Prize (2022)
