Sierra Business Council and Tahoe Silicon Mountain present Tahoe Pitch Showcase

Sierra Business Council and Tahoe Silicon Mountain are launching Tahoe Pitch Camp and Tahoe Pitch Showcase.

The showcase is a series of workshops culminating in an event for Tahoe/Truckee entrepreneurs, startups, and founders to present to the community their innovative companies and ideas.

At 6 p.m., Sept. 11, at Pizza on the Hill in Truckee, entrepreneurs will present their pitch at Tahoe Silicon Mountain’s Mountain Minds Monday for the chance to win prizes and receive feedback from an expert panel of judges, as well as the audience.

Tahoe Pitch Camp, a series of workshops, is designed for entrepreneurs to hone their skills, learn about successful pitch techniques, and craft a winning pitch. Taught by Sierra Business Council’s Kristin York in collaboration with Tahoe Silicon Mountain, participants will hone their presentation skills and information into a five-minute presentation, referred to as a pitch, identifying their value proposition and their organization’s capital needs. The showcase will feature some of the entrepreneurs from the Pitch Camp.

Entrepreneurs at any stage, startups, founders, and established businesses are all welcome to apply for Tahoe Pitch Camp and showcase.

The series, held at Sierra Business Council’s office in Truckee, will begin Aug. 16 and continue on Aug. 23 and Aug. 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. In addition to the classes, entrepreneurs are encouraged to take advantage of free one-on-one consulting with Sierra Business Council’s Small Business Development Center staff.

Tahoe Silicon Mountain is a hub for entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners, tech and other professionals who live, frequently visit, or own a second home in the Truckee-Tahoe region. Find out more at
