Fostering Small Business Success Through Competition

Contestant Reception


Finalists Announced
This event will feature announcement of the Finalists in both the Established Business and Pre-Venture categories.

Top Established Business contestants will be invited to set up displays, affording attendees a chance to learn about new products and services in Gwinnett.

Audience Votes
Top Pre-Venture contestants will be invited to do a short pitch of their business ideas, and the audience will select the idea that is the “Most Likely to Succeed.”
Attendees will cast their “votes” toward the ideas (as investment targets) using play money.
Prizes will be awarded for the three ideas receiving the most “investment.” (This is a prize category separate from the Established Business and Pre-Venture categories, and does not affect those contests.)

Contestants and sponsors will have a chance to mix and mingle!
All should mark their calendars to attend this exclusive by-invitation-only event. Previous contestants have reported getting good business leads during the evening! Invitees will receive more details as the event approaches.

Food Sponsor
Attendees will be treated to a delicious selection of food from our food sponsor.
