NORMAN — Pitching for

Buffalo Lounge

Oklahoma’s best elevator pitches from interactive entrepreneurs are sought for a $10,000, one-night pitch competition March 11 at the South By Southwest Conference & Festival in Austin, Texas.

Finalists, selected by a panel of entrepreneurs and angel investors from among 90-second video pitches submitted by Feb. 6, will pitch their business opportunities for a $5,000 grand prize in the Buffalo Lounge Elevator Pitch Competition for Oklahoma interactive companies. 

The pitch competition will be conducted at 9 p.m. March 11, before a live audience at The 512 Bar on 6th, 408 E. Sixth Street in Austin. It is sponsored by the Office of Entrepreneurial Development, a partnership between i2E and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber.

To enter a video pitch, please go to http://www.i2E.org and click on the Buffalo Lounge logo.

The Buffalo Lounge began in 2010 when the Oklahoma Film & Music Office, the Idea Collective and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber led an effort to create a collaborative effort to increase Oklahoma’s presence at the SXSW festival.

For more information or questions about The Buffalo Lounge Elevator Pitch competition, contact Josh O’Brien at jobrien@i2E.org or (405) 813-2412.
