Current and prospective social equity cannabusiness owners will descend on Worcester’s DCU Center on Thursday night, hoping to secure a big novelty check in Elevate Northeast’s first ever Social Equity Pitch Competition.
The Shark Tank-style event will be giving away a total of $200,000, as ten finalists will be given ninety seconds to make their final pitch to the audience and judges, followed by a 4 minute and 20 second Q&A period.
Participants will have multiple chances to bring home some cash, hopefully giving these applicants a little bit of breathing room until the state is able to implement its Social Equity fund. Three winners selected by the judges will each receive $50,000 checks, and audience members will also get to select two “people’s choice” winners, who will get $25,000 each.
