PitchPocalypse Rescheduled to March

rebuildup_CRESTS-Central-PPi-MARCH-2015-300Due to some issues like the weather of the past week, we had a lower than expected turnout so we are rescheduling the PitchPocalypse to a later date in March, possibly on a Sunday to make it more convenient for students to attend.  We will also be holding a 2nd ReBuildUp Course the Saturday before to increase our applicant pool for the contest.

Please check back on this site or join our Twitter or Facebook for the announcement on new dates.  Those who’ve already entered the PitchPocalypse business plan contest  will be contacted by email.

Thank you again to Summit Credit Union, Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, and UNCG’s NC Entrepreneurship Center for their continued support with these events.
