Hey there, thanks for stopping by! We’re so excited to share more about our 5 fabulous finalists competing in this year’s Hi5 Pitch Competition.
But before we do, here’s the rundown of how it works: 5 high-potential clients are given 5 minutes each to pitch to 5 hand-selected judges for a winning prize of $5,000! This competition provides our most innovative start-ups with a fabulous opportunity to generate awareness, build the skills necessary to present in front of a broad audience and gain exposure to our broad ecosystem of industry partners. PLUS, attendees get to cast their vote for who wins the People’s Choice Award!
Now that you’re in the loop, below are this year’s finalists:
