Rockford, Ill. — It’s “Shark Tank,” Rockford-style!

This year marks the 10th anniversary of NIU EIGERlab’s FastPitch Competition. Because the competition has been so successful year after year, attracting upward of more than 40 presenters, organizers can only venture to guess that’s why ABC started “Shark Tank,” a reality television series, that is very similar in scope.

Local innovators and entrepreneurs are invited to share their products, service or “ideas on a napkin” for a chance to win a $5,000 first prize in addition to outstanding mentoring and exposure.

This year’s FastPitch Competition will be held Wednesday, Sept. 28, at NIU-Rockford.

For full FastPitch Competition details, flier and registration form, visit the NIU EIGERlab website at Business pitches must be submitted in writing (1,000 words or less) to For additional information, call Sherry Pritz at (815) 753-2192.
