Pitch@WCC  Pitch@WCC is geared toward students and the community to strengthen entrepreneurial skills and advance business concepts, improving success at the event and beyond. The event takes place at Washtenaw Community College, located at 4800 E Huron River Drive, Ann Arbor, MI‎, on April 20, 2017 beginning at 6:00pm with presentations to be held in Towsley Auditorium. Individual and group registration needs to be finalized by January 18, 2017 and can be completed at http://tinyurl.com/pitchintent. This event is open to anyone, but does require practice and training with a time commitment of approximately 12 hours over the next 3 months.  Each training day will have a morning and an evening option to hopefully accommodate most schedules. Cash prizes for Pitch@WCC, ranging from $250-$1500, will be awarded in three events; start, build, and grow. In each category, prizes will be awarded to first place as well as runner up! There will also be an audience choice award which will be awarded to the pitch that was best received by the audience.
