Ann Arbor, Mich. – MichBio, the Michigan Bioscience Association, will sponsor the $500 prize for the winner of TC New Tech’s upcoming pitch meeting on September 4, 2018.


The meeting will feature presentations from five local businesses and entrepreneurs that showcase a new or improved technology they are using, or hoping to use, to advance their business. Each presenter will have five minutes to discuss their idea, followed by five minutes for audience questions. One of the five presenters will be awarded $500 for continued work on their project.


“This is exactly the type of innovation that MichBio champions in the bioscience industry, and while there may not be any bioscience presentations, advances in technology have a way of permeating many industries,” says Stephen Rapundalo, President and CEO of MichBio, “It is highly possible that the new technology or the people creating it will come to positively impact the bioscience industry in the future.”


He continued, “We are thrilled to be involved with TC New Tech and are excited to see what the presenters are working on and have the opportunity to talk with them after the event.”


The Pitch Meeting will take place in the City Opera House on 106 E. Front Street in Traverse City, Michigan. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with presentations beginning at 6:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, though an RSVP at is required.
