Moonshot Rural Arizona Pitch Competition-Tucson

Fri 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Topic: Start-up Assistance

Do you have a “moonshot” idea or an existing business you’d like to expand? Or maybe you have a product or business idea scribbled down on a napkin or notebook, but that's as far as you've gotten?! ​If you answered YES to either question above, join us for Moonshot's 5th Annual Rural Arizona Pitch Competition for entrepreneurs and business owners (aka, a showcase like you see on ABC's Shark Tank)! This year, we'll be taking the tour to 16 different cities/counties throughout rural Arizona, including Tucson. But that's not all. In August, each tour stop winner will travel to beautiful Cottonwood, Arizona to compete for the state title and $10,000 in cash or $5,000 in cash for "Crowd Favorite," voted on by audience members. ​ Participation is FREE OF CHARGE, thanks to our title sponsors Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, Arizona Commerce Authority, and APS. Tucson early-stage businesses are welcome to apply to the competition.


Co-Sponsor(s): Moonshot; Arizona Commerce Authority; City of Tucson; LocalFirst Arizona, Better Business Bureau; Startup Tucson
