Welcome to Downtown!


Business Impact NW, a community lender dedicated to serving under-banked entrepreneurs, is hosting their IMPACT PITCH contest. This contest is a way to help idea-phase, startup, or existing businesses get a kick start to new tools that build more effective business planning and strategies. The top two winners will receive a grand prize and are selected based on how they are making a positive impact on their communities.

There are 4 phases to the competition:

  1. Round One: Initial application;
  2. Round Two: Provide reasonable and feasible projected financials;
  3. Round Three: Successfully use technology to tell a story;
  4. Round Four: Practice the art of pitching the business.

The contest is currently in Round Three, the Semi-Finals stage, and looking for votes to support the best submissions that uses technology to tell a story. The winners from this round will be moved onto the next round of competition: the LIVE Pitch Competition.
