Flyer Pitch Competition – Final Round
April 9, 2022 @ 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM
The Flyer Pitch Competition is an annual competition sponsored by UD’s L. William Crotty Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and the Greater West Dayton Incubator in partnership with PNC Bank and The Entrepreneur’s Center. Now in its 16th year, Flyer Pitch awards more than $100,000 in cash prizes and more than $50,000 in in-kind prizes during the competition. Its legacy includes more than 70 new ventures that have been launched as a result of the competition with over $24 million in follow-on capital raised by those businesses. Over the course of the competition, participants have the opportunity to enhance their own skills as well as strengthen their venture through training, mentorship, and feedback from expert judges leading up until the live pitch presentation. This is not only intended to help finalists prepare for the pitch, but to ultimately provide entrepreneurs with the hands-on support to successfully launch their new venture. The Flyer Pitch Competition is open to all Dayton Students and Dayton Community members.
The finalists in the 2021-2022 Flyer Pitch Competition are pitching for $150K in non-diluted cash and in-kind prizes. This year Flyer Pitch is held in The Tank at the Arcade from 9:00am-5:30pm and is open to the public and available via live stream! The address to The Tank is 35 W Main St. Dayton, OH 45402.
