Missoula entrepreneurs practice their pitch at 1 Million Cups Missoula ahead of EPIC competition tonight

December 7, 2017

The practice run, held by 1 Million Cups https://www.1millioncups.com/missoula (meets every other Wed. at the Loft at 9AM) in downtown Missoula, served as a preview for Thursday night's EPIC Pitch Competition, hosted by the College of Business and Blackstone LaunchPad at UM.

There, eight finalists selected from a field of 17 entrants will pitch their ideas and, in doing so, compete for more than $3,000 in cash prizes. For some, the funding could be enough to advance their product and get their business idea off the ground.

The EPIC Pitch Competition takes place Thursday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. in the Gilkey Building at UM.
