Friday, August 2nd - Pitch in a Pub

Come to HooDoo Brewing Co. during August's FBKS First Friday for Pitch in a Pub. Everyone gets 30 seconds to pitch their idea for a product or service that will blow the socks off the audience and change Fairbanks forever. Registration will be from 4PM to 6:00PM. Pitches will start at 6:15PM sharp. Get that HooDoo that you do so well and show Fairbanks how great your idea is. Pitch it.... Pitch it real good. 

Fairbikes will also be on hand to show off their new bikes, give some pitch advice (they did win Fairbanks Startup Weekend) and judge the whole thing.
