The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Council is inviting local startups and inventors to apply to compete in its Pitch Stop V event before an audience of investors and businesspeople.

The online application portal will remain open until Nov. 30. Entrepreneurs and startups that are chosen to pitch their products or services before seasoned panel of equity funders at the Feb. 23, 2023, event will be notified by Jan. 31. The competition is open to local startups whose products or services are at varying stages of development and are seeking expert feedback on their pathway to success.

The winning startup will receive a prize package of professional services worth over $10,000.

The chamber’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Council works to bring together startup companies, small business entrepreneurs, educational institutions and funding organizations that support entrepreneurship. The Pitch Stop competitions, which began in 2019, recognize the immense role that innovation and entrepreneurship have in enhancing the region’s economic growth.

The event will be open to the public and provide attendees with the opportunity to network with inventors and investors from across the region. In addition to the main stage presenters, a selection of startups will have their product or service on display around the room.
