Entrepreneurs and investors connect

A series of statewide pitch competitions is bringing two incredible opportunities for entrepreneurs and those interested in Angel Investing in the KIX region.

The Kentucky Angel Regional Pitch Competition will feature Kentucky entrepreneurs presenting their business ideas to a group of local angel investors, individuals who provide capital for startup companies.

Elizabethtown will host the competition from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at The Brown-Pusey House at 128 N. Main St. Lunch will be provided at this event.

On Wednesday, July 23, the competition comes to Louisville. That event will be hosted by Greater Louisville Inc., located at 614 W. Main St., from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

These are two of eight regional competitions in a statewide contest.

Entrepreneurs will have 10 minutes to pitch their ideas, vying for prize money and a spot in the final competition in the fall. The winners will be announced at the end of the events.

In addition to the pitches, the agendas include investor training. You’ll learn the basics of Angel Investing and how to become an accredited investor.

These no-cost events are also a great networking opportunity for entrepreneurs and investors.

As we strive to grow the economy and create jobs throughout our region, we know innovative small businesses are a critical part of the mix. Our community’s ability to support local entrepreneurs and cultivate those homegrown ideas is key to future economic development.

The Regional Pitch Competition promises to be a great way to learn more about the business ideas brewing in our region and whether investing is right for you.
