March 2019 Pitch Event

Wilkes-Barre Connect, powered by the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business & Industry, hosted a private “pitch” event on March 20, 2019 at Wilkes-Barre’s THINK Center. This event featured full presentations by local startups Smoke Shield and Miner’s Mills Distilling Co. Smoke Shield is a solution to the problem of the overabundance of deaths in residential fires from smoke inhalation. Smoke Shield is a low cost, easy-to-install solution to get that time when escape isn’t possible. Miner’s Mills Distilling Co. aims to solve the issue in startup distilleries of launching a business with a mandatory production delay of the four years that it takes for a whiskey barrel to age and for these startups to begin offering their own spirits. PITCH is a formalized process to introduce entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses to our regional investor network in Northeastern Pennsylvania. PITCH is sponsored by the Willary Foundation, and coordinated by the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania, a Wilkes-Barre Connect partner.
