Top 10 Win This Space Contestants
The Win This Space judges have narrowed the competition from 41 to 10 finalists.
Judges and sponsors met Jan. 19 at Catalina’s at 131 Hunter Street West to go through all the applications. Contestants were asked to submit a 1 to 3 minute video pitch which the judges would use to help select the finalists.
The 10 finalists will go through a series of workshops on building business plans, creating marketing plans and financial forecasting.
The winner will be announced Feb. 16 at The Venue and will get the keys to their new space on April 1. The prize package includes not only a free lease to a downtown storefront for a year, but also thousands of dollars in donated prizes including office and computer supplies, marketing and financial services, and advertising and digital platforms.
The 10 finalists (in no particular order)
• Then and Now Goods
• Meta 4 Gallery

• The Boardwalk Lounge
• Tiny Greens
