Develop new solutions to deliver education

BTV Ignite is participating in this year's US Ignite series of "Reverse Pitch" Competitions.   Digital solution developers are invited to compete for $30,000 in cash grants to demonstrate innovative ways high-bandwidth ideas can help deliver education - in Burlington, across our state, and by linking our students with national communities and resources.

The BTV Ignite Reverse Pitch is supported by US Ignite, Burlington Telecom, and the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.

 

*** UPDATE - “Finals” PRESENTATIONS Wednesday OCT 10, 11AM AT THE ECHO CENTER IN BURLINGTON!

The top five reverse pitch finalists will be presenting their work to date on proof of concept on Wednesday, October 10 from 11am - 2pm at the ECHO Center in Burlington. The top two presentations will be eligible for development grants of up to $10,000 each. The two grant awardees will be announced at this year’s TechJam, on Friday October 19th.
