Congratulations to Anika, a 10 year old 5th grader who won our Sunday, March 15th PitchPocalypse business plan contest sponsored by Summit Credit Union at Greensboro Central Library.
Featured on News14 that night and into the next day, Anika’s winning idea was for a line of seasonal curtains to make it easier for people to decorate during the holidays.
WFMYNews2 was also kind enough to shine the spotlight on our PitchPocalypse winner from Sunday’s event at Greensboro Central Library sponsored by Summit Credit Union.

To qualify for the PitchPocalypse, Anika joined fellow preteens and teens in the ReBuildUp Course events playing a series of business mini-games that focused on economic fundamentals, idea development, and marketing tricks. Both events are part of ReBuildUp’s Startup Program that helps aspiring teen entrepreneurs test the waters of small business for a three to six month period with monetary, networking, accounting, and legal filing assistance.
As the winner, she will be receiving $300 towards launching her new company, one year membership to the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, and six months of accounting help from Michael Robinson Accounting along with free legal help filing incorporation papers from Elon University Business Clinic.
ReBuildUp plans to hold the next Teen ReBuildUp Course and PitchPocalypse in the summertime. Holding these events for adults 20 and older is also being discussed for the spring.
