Tell us about your idea/business by filling out a short form. Our selection committee will review the applications and choose the semi-finalists to pitch at the event. If you are selected, you will have the opportunity to attend the event and network with potential partners and investors, give your 5 minute elevator pitch and participate in a Q & A session in front of a panel of judges, potential investors, and digital media experts (please limit any PowerPoint presentations to 5 slides).
Music will be provided throughout the event by Nathan Mattimoe.
Nathan is a DJ, visual artist, and producer located in Toledo, OH. He has been a DJ and producer of a variety of genres for over 15 years. He is a resident of Old School Fridays (Wesley's, Toledo), a three year running weekly that covers the spectrum of funk, soul, reggae, hip hop and disco. As a member of the Bang Tech 12 DJ collective, Mattimoe is known for playing deep and dubby house, with a nod to techno, broken beat and experimental styles. His productions and remixes have been released on Bang Tech 12, Moehouse Records, Red Robot, and his own ENDIEM label. He also has releases as MATTIMOE | PERRINE (with Todd Perrine) on Red Robot, Moehouse, Eternal Underground, and Soiree.
The Pitch & Pour competition is an opportunity to win cash and prizes, but perhaps more importantly is the unique opportunity to showcase your business concept in front of (and network with) potential investors, mentors, prospective team members, and other valuable community resources, such as access to leading edge business development expertise.
