It’s like American Idol meets Shark Tank, only it’s LOCAL!

VoiceVibes - Debra Cancro
MuffinBomb - Steve Lowe and Pinwheel Leister
Stratosphere Trampoline Park - Bryan Zuber
Silver Linings Lavender Farm - Dawn Pritchard
IndiThat - Luke Fisher, Duane Martin, Jason Harder, and Lance Garber
What happens during the event?
The five Carroll Biz Challenge finalists will take the stage to deliver their best 5 minute business pitch, followed by 10 minutes of grueling Q&A from the 4 contest judges. During the event, we’ll be awarding the Zenith Capital Holdings Big Idea Award, Vox Pop Communications People’s Choice Award, and the $5,000 Grand Prize!
As an attendee, you will have the opportunity cast a vote for your favorite entrepreneur. The finalist with the most audience votes will win the $500 Vox Pop Communications People’s Choice Award! You’ll also be afforded two intermissions where you can network and take advantage of heavy hors d’oeuvres and light refreshments.
