Finalists will present a five-minute pitch in front of a judge’s panel, which includes the entrepreneur sponsors of the contest. Judges will have four minutes to ask questions and then score each entrant. Winners will receive up to a $1,000 cash prize, as well as mentoring hours by sponsors. A people’s choice winner will also be awarded via online voting.

The competition presentations will be held at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6th at Old City Hall council chambers in Barnesville, Minn. Presentations are open to the public.

The startup idea is not required to be located in Barnesville, though a $10,000 forgivable loan is available to the winner, should they choose to locate a business within the city.
