Reverse Pitch Challenge with Happy State Bank

Entrepreneurs are used to pitching their business idea to investors, partners and anyone they might meet in the local coffee shop. In this competition, the tables will turn. Instead, Happy State Bank will be bringing the idea to you, “Create the Branch of the Future”! Entrepreneurs and community members will have the chance to work together to think of innovative ideas and services that they would like to see in the branch of the future.
With coaching and mentorship from the WT Enterprise Center, groups will have the opportunity to learn how to pitch their solution and participate in the program. Join us at the kickoff event where you will interact with other like-minded community members, enhance your entrepreneurial spirit and have an opportunity to have an impact on the future of banking in Amarillo!
Prizes to be awarded for the Reverse Pitch include:
1st Place – $3,000
2nd Place – $1,500
People’s Choice – $500
Minimum of two people per team
