A night dedicated to the celebration and showcase of Modern Makers by having them vie for the ultimate Maker prize pack to fuel up their businesses.
Pitchers have been selected! We are excited to welcome these courageous and passionate entrepreneurs to the stage:
1. Buttercup Co.
3. Beer Snacks International
4. Carabara Designs
5. Mississippi North
6. Northbound Notebooks
7. SVRY Foods
8. Thirteen Muesli
The chosen crew will present to a judging panel and cheering crowd.We want to celebrate Modern Makers by having them present and compete for a great prize pack in front of a group of carefully selected judges. They are maker influencers in their own right so will know exactly which questions to ask the Pitchers.
