The Bloomington Economic Development Corp.’s pre-accelerator program will Tuesday hold its annual pitch competition. The B-Start Demo Day event serves as the culmination of a 22-week program designed to launch for-profit, innovation-driven businesses in Bloomington.
This year’s Demo Day will feature nine startups giving five-minute pitches in an effort to win up to $3,000 in funding. This year’s B-Start cohort was open to all Bloomington residents, instead of just students from Indiana University and Ivy Tech Community College.
The B-Start program provides business development workshops for startups as well as mentorship and consultation from local experts. Zachary Burr won last year’s B-Start Demo Day pitch competition for his on-demand laundry service startup, Tydee. Burr appeared on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick to talk about the win and his company, which you can view by clicking the link below.
