Jolt Competition offers young entrepreneurs the chance to start their business
2018 Competition slated for June 21
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 30, 2018
Livonia, MI, March 30, 2018– The second Jolt Competition is slated for June 21, 2018 at Supernatural Brewing and Spirits in Livonia, MI. Jolt Competition LLC was founded so that aspiring entrepreneurs could win funds and other professional resources to start their own businesses through a live pitch competition. The competition proved popular last year, as the event was standing room only, and the sponsors of the event enjoyed the pitches so much that they contributed more so that more business ideas could be funded.
I was quoted in Hometown Life as saying, “We're not looking for people to be the next Facebook—[We want] something small that impacts people's everyday lives. We want something we can see that can turn into a reality."
After a momentous first year where over $3000 in funds and professional services were awarded, Jolt Competition is seeking additional competitors and sponsors this year. This year, several sponsors have recommitted to the competition, citing the success of last year as a reason to return.
Dan West, CEO of the Livonia Chamber of Commerce had this to say, “White has shown a great entrepreneurial spirit with his initiative and determination to create this opportunity for young business-savvy minds in and around Livonia. He tells us there are many teenage and college-age people what want to explore entrepreneurism and this effort opens a door for those people.”
