RISE Fast Pitch Competition

Join RISE in an innovative evening for entrepreneurs, featuring a special Keynote Conversation between Vince Young and Colin Pope. The keynote will be followed by the live RISE Fast Pitch Competition featuring local entrepreneurs and their innovative start-up business ideas!

The RISE Fast Pitch Competition provides early-stage entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their business or new venture idea to a panel of judges and a wide array of conference attendees, including a live audience of community leaders. All participants will receive valuable, interactive feedback, and potential interest from industry leaders and professional investors. The winner will receive $3,000 cash and in-kind prizes, and our live audience will have a chance to choose an audience winner.
