NEIU NEW VENTURE PITCH NIGHT

COBM's BIG Center and the AARP Foundation’s Work for Yourself@50+ hosted a New Business Pitch Night Wednesday, May 22.

Entrepreneurs from the BIG Center’s first business planning cohort are pitching their business plans in a Shark Tank style to potential investors, government officials, community leaders, and prominent business owners.

Launching a business is a risky venture, but is less so with community support. Your presence at the pitch night is requested to give feedback on these exciting new business ventures, and if possible, to help them connect with customers, suppliers, industry experts, and access to financing.
