Would-be entrepreneurs visit Youngstown Business Incubator

Youngstown

30 budding entrepreneurs pitched their start-up business ideas to the Youngstown Business Incubator Tuesday morning.

The group was comprised of working professionals and college students of all ages, who traveled from Cincinnati to Youngstown on the Ohio Startup Bus.

Each year, buses are awarded to various cities in the U.S. and Mexico through a competitive-bidding process. This year, Cincinnati was selected, as were 30 developers, designers and businesspeople to board the bus.

Those selected presented their ideas to a panel of YBI judges who helped them refine their pitch during a critique session.

The goal is for the participants’ pitches to be selected at the bus’s last stop — the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.

The YBI and Garden Club are part of the reason why Youngstown was one of the top 10 cities to start a business in the U.S. Many thanks to these organizations. Good luck to those who presented their ideas this morning!
