If you have a young (less than three years old), licensed business in the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce service area, you’re eligible to compete in the Swim with the Sharks video pitch competition at the Emerging Enterprise Center Annual Luncheon in September.

Swim with Sharks is pretty much what you think — a pitch competition to land funds to grow your business. Rather than pitching to rich investors, you’re pitching to a panel of judges, first via video, then, if selected as a finalist, live in person at the luncheon where they’ll pick the Grand Prize Winner of $13,500 cash and other startup-aiding prizes.

Last year’s winner, Amira Idris of Vibrating Therapeutic Apparel (now called TheraV), has made a name for herself in the since taking the Grand Prize, including being chosen for a coveted spot in NextFab’s hardware accelerator.

Pitch videos must be three minutes or less and will be available for public view with social media shared encouraged once accepted.

Submit your video pitch at eecincubator.com by the Aug. 28 deadline. For full guidelines, click here.

Finalists will live pitch at the EEC Luncheon at the Delaware Contemporary on Sept. 22.
