3 of 6 finalists from Pitch Day were CWC Start-Up Intensive graduates

If you’re looking to open your own business, but don’t know where to start, CWC has the hookup. With their two month long Start-Up Intensive, they are turning business dreams into successful realities.

Last week, during the sixth annual Silicon Couloir Pitch Day, 6 early-stage companies from across the Teton community were showcased to an audience of 300. Among those 300, was our very own local celebrity, Governor Matt Mead.

Even more importantly, half of the finalists were graduates of the CWC Start-Up Intensive. Chosen as a finalist this spring by a Silicon Couloir selection committee each entrepreneur was coached by veteran entrepreneurs and investors from the community.

“I really think this was the best Pitch Day yet,” said Chris Hessler, Board Member/Co-Founder, Silicon Couloir. “All of the pitches were really well done with well thought out business models and assumptions. Having the Governor in attendance was the icing on the cake of an amazing day celebrating entrepreneurship in the valley.”
