The Ohio State University at Mansfield

Richland Idea Audition

Tuesday, October 16, 4:30 pm, Founders Auditorium

Richland County residents will pitch their ideas for new products, businesses, and services during the Richland Idea Audition. Five contestants who make it to the final round will pitch their ideas to an audience (public is welcome at 6:30 pm) and a panel of judges. The focus of the pitch contest is to support new business, help entrepreneurs get a new business off the ground, and introduce entrepreneurs to the community for support. The Richland County Foundation, Richland Area Chamber of Commerce, Richland Community Development Group (RCDG), The Ohio State University at Mansfield, Braintree Business Development Center, Small Business Development Center, and North Central Ohio SCORE are co-hosting the nice version of Shark Tank to boost local entrepreneurship.
