The Women-Owned Business Pitch Competition is a ‘Shark Tank’-style competition that provides a platform for a select group of women-owned businesses to compete for a chance to win funding. The Pitch Competition is judged by a panel of successful and established women entrepreneurs. This year, mentorship was provided to our finalists prior to the competition by Dusty Welsh, Executive Director and Lead Program Instructor at the Sister Sprout studio, offering business and nonprofit development framework which guides women founders through each step of the startup process.

The finalists pitched their business/product before a panel of judges and conference attendees – ‘Shark Tank’-Style – and answered live questions during the conference on November 9.
