TCNewTech and other opportunities

Traverse City’s monthly pitch competition

The popular TCNewTech pitch competitions are now a program fully owned and operated by 20Fathoms.

Founded in 2015 as a way to connect local tech professionals, TCNewTech quickly became a critical component in the region’s growing startup community with their popular monthly pitch competitions where startup founders would compete for a cash prize awarded by audience vote. Since its founding, more than 250 companies have pitched and $40,000 in pitch prizes have been awarded.

The pitch competitions will return in the spring 2024 under 20Fathoms’ leadership.

In the meantime, 20Fathoms is inviting the public to help shape the next chapter of TCNewTech by submitting their feedback and ideas about the pitch events. Click here to complete the survey.
