How it works
The Launch Rural Nevada Pitch competition is an event that was developed to assist small business owners with pitch development and delivery, a crucial skill when establishing clientele and securing capital. Further, the program allows proprietors an opportunity to learn tips and tricks from local business leaders, network with new and established small business owners, and potentially secure prize money to assist with startup costs.
Once registered, you will be offered several online training and educations courses that are provided by Nevada’s premier business accelerator, StartupNV. The team at StartupNV will continue to mentor and assist with presentation content, slide design, and speech delivery ensuring that you’re ready to launch on pitch day. The four top contenders from each category will go on to pitch at the final event on November 3, 2023.
