53 Ideas Business Pitch Competition

May 1 @ 12:00 am - May 31 @ 11:59 pm

What if you were only 53 seconds away from turning your dream business into a reality? You’ll never know unless you try!

The South Piedmont Community College’s Small Business Center and Fifth Third Bank are giving you the opportunity to take a chance on yourself and compete to win $10,000, $5,000 or $2,500. Submissions for the 53 Ideas Business Pitch Competition will be accepted May 1 through May 31. Take action now and get your entry in before the deadline.


Visit www.53ideas.com between now and May 31 to record your 53-second pitch and complete an entry submission.

Learn if judges select your idea as one of the top 53 entries. If so, you’ll move on to the next pitch round and be one step closer to a shot for the top cash prizes.

Sign-up for training to help you prepare for the next round of the competition and/or to further develop your idea.

During the week of July 11th pitch virtually before judges to try to secure a spot in the top 10.

Get $250 if your idea is selected as one of the top 10 and take advantage of coaching to help you perfect your pitch for the final round.

Pitch as a top 10 contestant in the final round to compete for $10,000, $5,000 and $2,500. The final pitch round will be in-person before judges and broadcast to an online audience this August.
