The 2019 Quad County Business Summit will feature its first-ever pitch competition.

The QuadTank will offer entrepreneurs from the four localities a funding opportunity to take their business ideas to the next level. The winning individual or team will be awarded $4,750 to support implementation of their business plans. At the end of the day, the winner will be chosen by a panel of judges made up of Gold Sponsors and the Small Business Development Center.

The pitches will be judged based on criteria from the GrowthWheel, which is a visual toolbox used by business advisors at the Small Business Development Center to help businesses make decisions and take action. Contact the Central Virginia Small Business Development Center to learn more about the GrowthWheel.
