On Wednesday, July 24, from 6PM-9PM, the IJ Clinic will partner with the South Shore Chamber of Commerce to host a tournament-style pitch competition, the Pitch Perfect Tournament, for all those who apply for South Side Pitch. This is an optional event and participation, though it may help your odds, is NOT required in order to advance in the South Side Pitch competition. We're hosting the event to give as many businesses as possible the chance to practice their pitch and vie prizes of up to $100. Will you participate in the Pitch Perfect Tournament on Wednesday, July 24, 6-9 PM in South Shore (location details forthcoming)?
