The 2017 Central Vermont Road Pitch will be held on Thursday, August 3rd beginning at 2:30 PM, Vermont Granite Museum, located at 7 Jones Bros. Way, Barre, VT 05641
FreshTracks’ Road Pitch sends Business Bikers on the Road for a 5 day road trip across Vermont in search of the best and brightest entrepreneurs across the state. The Road Warriors hold Office Hours in select towns across the Green Mountains, pit stopping in barns, train stations and inns to solicit pitches from teams of entrepreneurs seeking advice and capital. The Central Vermont Road Pitch provides entrepreneurs from across the region the opportunity to pitch their idea or project to forty venture capitalists. Presenters will sell their vision in hopes of securing the funding needed to create that better mousetrap.
Accepted applicants will be given the opportunity to work with a coach who will help them craft their pitch for the event.
