The Grand Strand Tech Council, Conway Innovation Center, Georgetown Innovation Center, Coastal Carolina University, and the Grand Strand Angel Network worked together to pull off another successful Pitch Night.
The event started earlier than usual with an exclusive pre-party at 4pm at Tupelo Honey. This is where the event partners launched their newest and most collaborative entrepreneurial initiative, titled Entrepreneurial Explorers. One of the leaders of this initiative, Bill Stanton, explained that this was to support local community members get from an idea to a minimally viable product. A few local startups then provided information about their idea and got feedback from the group of invited guests.
Then Pitch Night started at 6pm at the Grand 14 Theater - where five new companies pitched their products and services to an audience of 150 people in under 10 minutes.
When the pitches were done, everyone in attendance was invited to a free reception for food and drinks to network and discuss opportunities with the entrepreneurs one-on-one.
