Calling All Entrepreneurs! Entrepreneurs and Investors Meet on the Slopes for Peak Pitch 2023

Shelburne, VT (February 22, 2023)—FreshTracks Capital announces the return of Peak Pitch, a start-up business pitch event on the slopes, scheduled for Tuesday March 14.  Now in its seventeenth year, Peak Pitch brings aspiring entrepreneurs and investors together for a unique version of the classic “elevator pitch.”  At Peak Pitch, a shared chairlift ride gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their business plans to venture capitalists, individual investors, commercial lenders and other entrepreneurial advisors during a day of skiing and snowboarding at Sugarbush.

Peak Pitch combines business networking with fun on the slopes, and the pitch contest also creates an opportunity for new business plans to get funded.  Entrepreneurs and investors should register early since space is limited.

Cairn Cross, FreshTracks Capital’s Founding Partner, said, “We’re pleased to see so many businesses get started and funded at Peak Pitch. It’s a great way for investors to meet with a number of entrepreneurs in a single day, and terrific exposure for those entrepreneurs. We have found quite a few of our investments there on the slopes.”

This year’s Peak Pitch event is presented by FreshTracks Capital, and generously hosted by Sugarbush Resort.  The event’s Premier Sponsor is Gallagher Flynn & Company.  Founding sponsors Merritt & Merritt and the VT Department of Economic Development are joined this year with additional support from Dinse, Gravel & Shea, Hinge Pin Advisors, HulaMascoma Bank, Moulton Law Group, M&T Bank,  New England Federal Credit UnionNFP Insurance, North Country Angels, Super ColliderUniversity of Vermont Office of the Vice President for Research, Vermont Community Loan Fund, and Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies.
