Pitch Tank Competition Overview

To enter, submit an online application by Monday, August 21st that describes you, your business – whether it’s early-stage or established – and why you think you should win!

If you are selected by our judges as one of our 12 semi-finalists, we’ll ask you to send us a 3-minute video pitch for the final round. Those semi-finalist videos will be shown during the Pitch Tank 2023 event on October 12th, when we will announce the winners.

The two top prize winners will each receive $25,000 – chosen on the basis of the quality of their business plans and their video pitches. The two runners-up will each receive $10,000, an additional finalist will receive a $5,000 prize based on community impact, and one finalist will be chosen by the live audience to win $5,000!
