To apply for the LatinX Business Pitch Competition, businesses must meet these eligibility requirements:

  • Must be a startup or aspiring entrepreneur. Existing businesses must be in operation for less than two years.
  • Must be based in Tarrant County. Existing businesses must be located in Tarrant County, and aspiring entrepreneurs must be residents of Tarrant County.
  • Must submit their business registration certification from either Tarrant County or the State of Texas.
  • Must submit a business plan.
  • Must attend the “What are lenders looking for?” workshop hosted by competition partner Bank of America.

The competition is open to all businesses, not just minority-owned businesses. Applications are due June 25.
