Pitch Your Business/Pitch Some Hay

Pitch Your Business/Pitch Some Hay

There is a certain ethos to Vermont that those of us who live here understand.  You feel it when you cross the border on your way home, or fly into Burlington or disembark from Amtrak in Rutland or Brattleboro.  It’s truly a special place and it is somehow simply not like anyplace else.  So as we put Road Pitch together we have been keeping that in mind.  Steve Mason and Trish Sears (see founding rider page) figured this out immediately.  This event is not going to involve pitches in sterile generic conference rooms.  No way.  Steve and Trish offered up their 1865 barn which over the years has hosted cows, horses, weddings, birthday parties, family reunions, and campaign rallies.  There is even room for us to pull the bikes inside if it is raining.  So on the morning of August 7th the last day of our ride, we are proud to announce we will swing by Steve and Trish’s barn in Lowell, Vermont to listen to pitches.  If you live near Lowell or want to pitch in the barn at that stop, contact Steve (his email is on founding rider’s page) and sign up.  We are hoping that other unique pitch venues will materialize but for now we are off to a terrific start. I get a kick out of thinking of the original 1800s farmers pitching hay in the barn.  On August 7th you could pitch your business concept where there once was pitched hay.
