2018 JEDCO Challenge Starts Tomorrow

NEW ORLEANS – There is still time to register for the 2018 JEDCO Challenge powered by Greater Lakeside Corporation.

5 startups. 7 minutes. 1 winner.

This Jefferson Parish-based pitch competition features five dynamic startups, all vying for a business-boosting prize package of $20,000 and donated professional services.

Entrepreneurs have just seven minutes to convince a panel of regional business leaders and everyone in the audience that they deserve to walk away with the winnings. 

To help JEDCO decide, guests will receive a voting chip when they arrive at the competition. They encourage everyone to meet the finalists in person and stick around for their pitches. And voting will be open after the final pitch. Your vote will help determine which innovative startup takes home $20,000 at the end of the day. 

The event will take place May 15, on the 11th floor of One Lakeway in Metairie at 1:00 p.m. See startup demos, vote for your favorite company, and stick around for networking and drinks once the winner has been chosen.
