    WILKES BARRE, PA: Wilkes-Barre Connect, powered by the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business & Industry, will officially open the next round of our PITCH program on Thursday, March 1st, and remain open until the March 28th deadline.
    PITCH is a formalized process to introduce entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses to our regional investor network in Northeastern Pennsylvania. PITCH is sponsored by the Willary Foundation, and coordinated by the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania, a Wilkes-Barre Connect partner.
    Interested parties can access and complete the online venture profile (application) on our website www.wilkesbarreconnect.org/submit-venture-profile/ to be considered for this round.  After the deadline, our formal PITCH selection committee will then review and choose qualifying candidates to be featured during our live PITCH event, which will be held on May 9th at the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center. 
    If you would like to learn more about the PITCH process, or discover how you can join the regional investor network, please contact Joseph Boylan at joseph.boylan@wilkes-barre.org or visit the website at www.wilkesbarreconnect.org.
