REDI’s Ignition Pitch Competition allows entrepreneurs the opportunity to deliver a concise presentation outlining an idea, business model, marketing strategy, competitive analysis and financial plan to a panel of judges.

The judges can comment and ask questions of the pitch contestants immediately after the pitch. Winners are announced at the end of the day-long event. For the fifth annual event in 2015, event organizers chose 15 contestants from more than 50 applications. The top prize in 2015 was $6,000.

The 2016 Pitch Competition will be Monday, October 10, as part of Bringing Up Business: Mid-Missouri’s Innovation Week.
