Innovation Connector’s annual BIG Idea Pitch Competition is where entrepreneurs and innovators pitch their business concepts, product, or invention. This competition gives people the chance to prove the potential of their business idea. This year’s BIG Idea Pitch Competition was nothing less than a success. At the event, entrepreneurs and innovators were able to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges in pursuit of getting exposure, making connections, and even winning cash prizes.
Congratulations to all of the participants of the BIG Idea Pitch, all of the pitches were brilliant, and great ideas were showcased.
