This year (2019), Macon Startup Week is hosting our first ever Pitch Contest! If you have a great idea and need some money to help launch it, we’re here for you! We will be giving away $1,000 for 1st place, $300 for 2nd place, and $200 for 3rd place, all voted on by the audience!


We’ve included a form below for you to submit your business idea and we’ll be selecting the top 3 to present. For those not pitching – we need your help! You will be deciding which business gets funded!
