Get Started Rhode Island pitch contest


Are you an inspiring entrepreneur with a $1 million dollar idea? Cox Communications is hosting a Cox Business Initiative, Get Started Rhode Island pitch contest on October 4, and Friday, June 30, is the last day to register for a pitch submission. Apply today to get your idea out there. Much like ABC’s show Shark Tank, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their business to a distinguished panel of experts for a chance to win a prize package valued up to $50,000, including $25,000 in cash.

The Rhode Island version of Cox’s Business Initiative is one of the most successful executions of this program. It allows local people of Rhode Island a chance to chase the American dream in which they can attend one of Rhode Island’s best networking events for small businesses and startups.

The evening will include the main pitch competition with expert feedback from a panel of judges, a panel discussion including an audience question-and-answer session, networking and an array of appetizers and desserts. Get Started Rhode Island will take place on October 4 from 5:30­­–8:30 p.m. at the WaterFire Arts Center on 475 Valley St. in Providence.
