SEOM Interactive, a digital marketing agency in Bucks County, and TheBathOutlet.com, an online bathroom accessories retailer in Montgomery County, are teaming up to host the first annual BucksMontBizCon business conference on October 22md in Warminster. At the conference, local entrepreneurs and start-ups will have a chance to participate in a “Shark Tank”-style event for the opportunity to win $5,000 to help fund their business.
Local entrepreneurs are currently being asked to complete an online submission form to enter into the event, dubbed “Sell It To The Sharks.” After an evaluation process, three entrepreneurs/start-ups will be chosen to pitch their ideas live in front of three successful local CEO's – Will Shuhibar (TheBathOutlet.com), Colleen Mook (BabyBeHip.com), and Mark Kennedy (SEOMInteractive.com).
The competition will include a ten minute live pitch as well as a five minute question and answer session with the judges. Contestants will be judged on a number of factors, including their unique selling proposition, longevity, and financial considerations. The money will ultimately be awarded to the entrepreneur(s) who the judges feel have presented the best business plan.
The deadline for submission to participate in “Sell It To The Sharks” is Friday, September 18. For more information or to submit your idea, please visit http://www.bucksmontbizcon.com/#!sell-to-the-sharks/c1e0q.
