The contest is open to all residents of Barnstable County.
Each participant will be given two and a half minutes to pitch their business or nonprofit idea within the theme of “Healthy Communities” and/or “Health Equity” to a panel of judges and the audience. Examples include ideas around health sciences and technology, sustainability, care and wellbeing of Cape Codders and goods and services featuring healthy lifestyles.
Participation and attendance is free but advance registration is strongly recommended. Appetizers and finger foods will be provided by 3 Monkeys; there will be a cash bar.
