KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The elevator door opens. And there stands your ideal investor. It’s the chance of a lifetime. But that chance only lasts as long as the elevator ride – you have a finite amount of time to make the right impression.
WATE 6 On Your Side partnering with Innov865 for a series called the “Elevator Sessions.” Six startups, selected for Startup Day’s pitch competition, have less than one minute to sell their business to WATE 6 On Your Side Anchor Bo Williams.
Does each startup make the cut? Watch and decide:
- Daniel Lawhon, AirFlare
- Jay Crawford, Hot Transfer Network
- Alicia Caputo, Avrio Analytics
- Dimitriy Petrov, RushBrush LLC
- Graham Taylor, T&T Scientific Corporation
- Eva Mutunga, TechSmarrt
The startups will also have to make their pitch for a $5,000 cash prize, presented by Three Roots Capital and SouthEast Bank at the U.S. Cellular Stage at The Bijou Theatre on September 22.
Startup Day is the signature event of Innov865 Week, a week-long series of events that celebrates entrepreneurship and showcases Knoxville as a great place to start and grow a business.
