Despite the difficulties presented in the Business Incubator having to pivot to remote learning, this year's teams have shown an uncanny ability to adapt to the situation with extraordinary resiliency and commitment to their businesses. We are proud to give them a platform to share their ideas with our community in the hopes of attracting investors and raising much needed start up capital through sponsorships. The judging process for this year's event took place during the Academic Pitches on May 21 and 22. 5 teams are moving forward to the Accelerator program in the fall and will present at this year's Virtual Pitch Night Showcase on May 29 starting at 7 PM.
At the event 5 teams will present their pitches to the community, we will have some speakers from LFHS and the Foundation as well as updates from some of this year's Accelerator Teams. 2020 Best Pitch and Foundation Cup winners will be announced along with funding allocations from the LFHS Foundation Sponsorship pool. One NEW and exciting aspect of this year's event is that the community at large will have the opportunity to support these teams through sponsorship donations to the teams of their choice via this event website. You can donate to the team(s) of your choice in $25 or $100 increments by navigating to the ITEMS page using the website menu (top right). We will also have a form available so investors can pledge support for any of the teams in which they wish to invest. If you want to become an INVESTOR please fill out theInvestor Form.
We hope that everyone will JOIN US on Friday, May 29th as we navigate the uncharted territory of a Virtual Pitch Night Showcase. It should be an exciting evening filled with the enthusiasm, hope and promise of LFHS student teams who are working so hard to get their businesses up and running.
