At 7pm today, four finalists will be competing for a $1000 prize, as they pitch their projects to Awesome Buffalo (learn more). The no-strings-attached competition is solely based on the ‘awesome’ nature of the proposed initiative – there are no constraining parameters other than the idea must be awesome.
The community is invited to attend the pitch event at The Washington Market in downtown Buffalo. That is where four finalists will deliver their 90 second pitches in front of the organization’s trustees, who will then hand over $1000 in cash (out of pocket) to the winner.
This is the first of at least two pitch events Awesome Buffalo plans for 2017, with trustees rotating between each event.
The four presenters were whittled down from 65 applicants who vied for a chance to pitch their ideas to trustees affiliated with The Awesome Foundation. The pitch event is free to attend.
