Here are the pictures from the Saturday, February 21st ReBuildUp Course held at Central Library in Downtown Greensboro sponsored by Michael Robinson Accounting. Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing the location of the next ReBuildUp Course to be held also in Downtown Greensboro on Saturday, March 14th, 1-5pm the day before the rescheduled PitchPocalypse at Central Library on Sunday, March 15th, 2:30-5pm.
First up, Economy, Jr.
Time for cards with Million Dollar Idea.
The presentations begin with Pitch Drill.
It all comes together in the Cashless Incubator held at the end.
Due 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.
