Empower companies in Lake County at Saturday's GWDC/SBAC TechWauk Pitch Event

Greater Waukegan Development Coalition has been working with entrepreneurs with business plans aimed at the healthcare market. This Pitch Event is the culmination of 16 weeks of mentor ship for two of our start ups. Three or four other members of this group will participate as well. It will be held on Saturday, November 8th, from 5:00 to 9:30 pm at the Waukegan Yacht Club, 199 Harbor Place in Waukegan. 

Each of the start ups will have 6 minutes to pitch their product or solution followed by 10 minutes of Q&A with three prominent expert panelists. Each member of the crowd will be given $1000 of “Funny Money” to “invest”. The start up raising the most “funding” wins, and will receive real world prizes.

But it is not all entertainment; there is plenty at stake. Some in the audience have real money in their pockets. The ultimate prize for one or all of our start-ups could be a major kickstart to their business.

While the start-ups schmooze with the heavy-hitters, the rest of us will enjoy sampling 70 wines and beers with accompanying appetizers.
