Help decide which local entrepreneur wins the $2,000 Eau Claire community prize, and will be able to compete for the regional $5,000 cash prize! Please join Eau Claire Economic Development Corporation Thursday, July 19, 2018 from 6:00pm-8:30pm at the State Theater, 316 Eau Claire Street, Eau Claire WI 54701. This event will be the first of four HATCH events in the region.
HATCH Pitch competitions are social events where local entrepreneurs pitch their idea to a panel of judges to see who will move onto the regional finals for a $5,000 Grand Prize. In addition to the judge's selection, the audience favorite will also move onto the Chippewa Valley finals for a chance at the grand prize. While the purpose of HATCH is to accomplish serious business growth, the event itself is designed to be fun, highly social, and open to everyone free of charge. Attendees can expect to network with other creative people, business professionals, and investors.
