D300 Community Invited to Dundee-Crown's Pitch Night May 4 at 7pm

Dundee-Crown High School students enrolled in the Business INCubator program will compete for an opportunity to launch their respective businesses during Pitch Night on May 4 at 7pm in the Dundee-Crown High School Auditorium (1500 Kings Road, Carpentersville). Pitch Night is open to the public.

During Pitch Night, the top 5 business concepts from Dundee-Crown’s Business INCubator program will complete for The Startup Award, valued at $20,000. The Startup Award consists of seed money and promises services to help launch the winning business with a variety of services, including: website hosting, the purchase of website domain, web support, logo design, promotional printing, and access to a team of business consultants who will guide them through their operations. The team of entrepreneurs will also attend a summer entrepreneurship institute and continue their studies with enrollment in Business INCubator 2 during the 2017-2018 school year.

The Pitch Night competition will be similar to the ABC television show Shark Tank. Each student team will pitch their business concept to a Board of Investors who will determine the winner.
