2017 Palouse Challenge
You’re Invited To The 4th Annual Palouse Challenge!
Thursday Noon – 2:30 pm, May 25, 2017
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required and attendance is limited to the first 200 people.
Join us for BTE Bootcamp’s annual Palouse Challenge “Shark Tank”-style event, sponsored by Palouse Commercial Real Estate and Zions Bank. On Thursday, May 25th, campers and community members alike will gather at the SEL Event Center from 12:00-2:30 pm to watch the six campers compete for the chance to win three cash prizes.
The six competing businesses will be the winners from the BTE Bootcamp Crucible Competition. These six businesses will present their business plans in front of a panel of Sharks, industry experts from the Palouse region and beyond. In addition, with the chance to take home a cash prize, competitors will have the opportunity to receive invaluable feedback from the Sharks to help further develop their plans.
Attendees will also enjoy a delicious catered lunch with the chance to mix and mingle with fellow business-minded community members and the BTE Bootcamp campers and staff. After lunch, community members who attend will have the chance to hear from our six campers about their innovative businesses and learn from the Sharks’ questions and input.
While the Sharks deliberate after the competition, the rest of the BTE Bootcamp attendees will present one-on-one to audience attendees to get invaluable in-depth feedback to help them to develop their concepts.
Don’t miss out on this exciting afternoon where you will watch the only Shark Tank-style event on the Palouse and even have the chance to give and develop your own business pitch.
