The Hudson Library & Historical Society will virtually hold its eighth annual “Pitch Night” competition on Tuesday, November 17 at 6:30 p.m. Seven finalists will be selected from the pool of online applications to pitch their business ideas to a panel of expert judges on Zoom.


Participants will need to apply for one of the 5-minute time slots available for this “shark tank” style program. Online applications will be accepted starting Monday, October 5, and must be received by Monday, October 26, 2020. The seven finalists chosen to pitch will be notified by Monday, November 2, 2020. Finalists will have until Wednesday, November 11 to create a 5-minute pitch video, which may include animations, simulations or a digital presentation. During the live Pitch competition, contestants will answer questions posed by a panel of judges.


The winner of the 2020 Pitch competition will receive a $5,000 cash prize, and two runners-up will each receive a $2,500 cash prize.


This event is one of many planned for the City of Hudson’s celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), returning for the seventh consecutive year, November 16-22. “Pitch Night” and GEW 2020 are generously supported by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation. More information can be found at
