The CFE’s next event is the Spring Pitch Contest with speaker Liz Elam, founder of Link Coworking, Austin, Texas. It takes place from 5:30-8 pm, March 26, 2014.

The contest is open to local entrepreneurs and small and family business owners to “pitch” ideas to a group of potential investors for funding. Each attendee will have 5 minutes to present their concept to the crowd and each member of the audience will have the opportunity to bid on their favorite project. The winner will take home the total of the bids from the audience and a special cash award provided by the event sponsors.

Held in the Intellectual Capitol, 1413 Eoff Street, housed in the historic First State Capitol Building, the Pitch Contest is open to the public.
