Six entrepreneurs took the stage at the Jackson's Center for the Arts Aug. 10 to pitch their businesses to community members, investors and a panel of six business experts. Each entrepreneur had eight minutes to explain their business model and attract supporters.

Pitch Day was sponsored by First Western Trust and Central Wyoming College. Three of the six presenting entrepreneurs were graduates of the Silicon Couloir/Central Wyoming College Start Up Intensive.

The sixth annual Silicon Couloir Pitch Day showcased promising early stage companies from across the Teton County community.

Three consumer product companies and three technology companies presented to an audience of 300 which included Wyoming Governor Matt Mead, who gave inspiring opening remarks about his efforts to diversify Wyoming's economy through entrepreneurship.
