Nationwide & BlueVine Launch “Pitch to Win”

Nationwide and BlueVine , a CA-based company that offers an invoice factoring product to provide businesses with cash advances of up to $5m on their outstanding invoices, just unveiled a new small business contest called “Pitch to Win” that offers businesses the opportunity to compete for up to $100k.

At the end of the entry period, Nationwide and BlueVine will narrow the list to the small businesses with the best pitches. The finalists will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Nationwide’s headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, where they will present their proposal in person to an executive panel of judges. The finalists will also get to meet and consult with experienced business experts.

The winning proposal will receive $100k from Nationwide and BlueVine. The runner up will get $20k, with third place receiving $10k. The awards will be non-dilutive, meaning business owners will not be required to give any ownership of their company.

Bottom Line: Enter by June 30.
