Sparking Entrepreneurial Spirit:
February 6 Pioneer Pitch Panel Offers New Entrepreneurs Opportunity to Bring Their Ideas to Market
 
Pitching their best business idea to a live audience with the prospect of attracting investors is the strategy for success that four teams of local entrepreneurs will take as they prepare to present their business plans to the Indian River State College (IRSC) Business Incubator Pioneer Pitch Panel. This exciting “Shark Tank”-inspired event takes place Wednesday, February 6, at 5:30 p.m. at the College’s Main Campus in Fort Pierce.
 
Comprised of four well-known Treasure Coast business leaders, the Pioneer Pitch panel provides real-world feedback to the competing teams—along with the opportunity for possible investment in their idea. Celebrating 20 years of recognition of the entrepreneurial spirit on the Treasure Coast, each of this year’s Pitch Panel members are recipients of the Entrepreneur of the Year (EOTY) Award.
