About

In celebration of the Burton D. Morgan Foundation’s 50th Anniversary, the Hudson Library will host its fifth annual “Pitch Night” on Tuesday, November 14 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 in front of an audience.

Participants will need to apply online at hudsonlibrary.org for one of the 10-minute time slots available for this “shark tank” style program.  Online applications will be accepted starting Monday, October 9, and must be received by Monday, October 30, 2017. The seven finalists chosen to pitch will be notified by Monday, November 6. A $3,000 cash prize will be awarded to the first place winner, second place will receive $1,500 and third place will receive $500. The public is welcome to participate as a member of the audience and watch the competition.

This event is one of many planned for the City of Hudson’s celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), returning for the fourth consecutive year, November 13-19. “Pitch Night” and GEW 2017 are generously supported by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation. More information can be found here.
