A Room With a View

With views of Mount Elden and the SanFrancisco Peaks, an empty office waits for a tenant in the NACET Accelerator building.

For the second straight year, Moonshot at Northern Arizona Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NACET) will host a competition for innovators with ideas in need of support and businesses wanting to expand an existing idea.

The Pioneer Pitch event, set for Feb. 22-24, is similar to ABC's Shark Tank. Workshops will be held at NACET's campus on Gemini Drive with the final competition at Lowell Observatory on Mars Hill. Potential contestants must submit an online application and post a two minute video about their product or service on YouTube by Feb. 18. Entrants will be competing for more than $15,000 in cash, scholarships and Amazon Web Services credits, as well as the chance to become an affiliate of Moonshot at NACET for a year.

Entry is free and candidate will be selected based on the strength of their applications and videos, which should explain why their new product, service or innovate approach to marketing an existing product is unique.
