We love founding cool new venues to host Big Gig, and Tea & Tarts in downtown Bangor didn't disappoint for our October pitch-off!
First up, Gerald Collins pitched his medical device to help solve Sedentary Death Syndrome, caused from too much sitting. Amanda Hatley then pitched She Summits Co., an adventure travel summer camp for young women ages 11-16 that's creating self confident memories through brave experiences in the outdoors! The third and final pitcher of the evening was Kim Slininger who pitched Spirit Warrior, an equine therapy program to help rehabilitate veterans suffering from PTSD.
After some constructive feedback from our Big Wig judges, Heather Lux, Founder of True North Beauty, David Pease, SVP Director of Talent, Diversity, & Inclusion at Bangor Savings Bank, and EJ Roach, Director of Economic & Community Development for Old Town, Maine, the audience and the judges voted for their favorite, and Kim Slininger was crowned the winner! Thanks to all who attended, and we look forward to seeing you at our pitch-off in December!
