The Swim With The Sharks (SWTS) Video Pitch Competition is an opportunity for start-ups, less than three (3) years in business, to gain exposure for their business, and potentially win over $10,000 in cash and services to be used in their business.


Participants are invited to submit a (up to three (3) minutes or less) video that showcases their business and explains how the prize package will be used to take their business to the next level.

The ideal video will be CLEAR, CONCISE, & COMPELLING! It is not a sales pitch or commercial for your business. Your video should tell a story. It should include:

  • Who you are?
  • Business name and when it was started?
  • Overview of the business
  • Who is your customer?
  • What problem are you solving?
  • What is your unique value proposition?
  • What phase of start-up you are in?
  • How the prize package will be used to take the business to the next level?
  • Be visually appealing

To assist you in preparing the best video pitch for your business, the Emerging Enterprise Center will be offering two (2) workshops:

Note: Attendance at these workshops are NOT required to participate in SWTS Video Pitch Competition. However, anyone attending both workshops and submitting a video to SWTS will be offered ½ price tickets to the EEC Luncheon on 9/22.
