Tuesday, Aug. 1, 4:30 p.m.—RUTLAND—REDC Growing Business Series presents Rutland Road Pitch Tuesday, Aug. 1, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Rutland Free Library. Three Rutland-area entrepreneurs will present ideas for new products and business expansion to an audience of Vermont’s leading venture capitalists and angel investors during the Rutland stop of the annual Road Pitch. Members of the public are invited to observe the competition at the Rutland stop, which will also include a private networking reception for riders, pitchers, and sponsors.
The Entrepreneurship Committee announced the competitors in June. They are: Dave Goodspeed of BalanceWorks; Jeff Dejarnette of SoundPlum; and Barry Leete of Fire Technologies International. Plus, there will be a special team presentation at the close of the competition.
Road Pitch was created in 2014 by Cairn Cross, co-founder and managing director of FreshTracks Capital. The event gathers motorcycle riders who have investing, entrepreneurial, and business advisory expertise for a multi-day motorcycle trip around Vermont. Road Pitch showcases Vermont’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, provides Vermont entrepreneurs with access to advice, networking, and capital, and helps entrepreneurs polish and refine their pitching skills.
