Southside Pitch Shark Tank-like competition Deadline Sept. 2, 2020

SouthSide Pitch  just opened up the applications for our virtual shark-tank style pitch competition, South Side Pitch, so South Side businesses with a track record of serving customers can now apply. As you know, positive stories about the South Side are often overlooked. We want to help change that by using this competition to highlight some of the most incredible entrepreneurs and businesses that operate in the South Side. On November 5th, finalists will pitch their business virtually in front of 200+ Chicagoans and a panel of judges to compete for prizes up to $8,000. This is an excellent opportunity to support businesses that are struggling right now because of COVID-19 and to change the narrative that the South Side is not business-friendly.

Our applications are open right now until August 24th (Extended to Sept. 2, 2020).
