February 6, 2018

On behalf of Project Pitch It and Cardinal Stritch University, we are very pleased to announce Season 2 of Project Pitch It beginning Saturday, February 10, at 6:30 p.m. on WISN-TV 12.
 
“Project Pitch It features Wisconsin’s successful moguls and entrepreneurs who seek to positively impact Wisconsin’s economy and quality of life,” said Bev Greenberg, the show’s co-creator and executive producer. “Each episode will educate, inspire and entertain, while also serving as a platform to nurture business growth and job opportunities in our State.”
 
Stritch is delighted to serve as a lead sponsor and program development partner for Project Pitch It,” said Stritch President Kathleen A. Rinehart, J.D. “Project Pitch It aligns extremely well with the University’s value proposition and commitment to support those programs that provide transformational and practical experiences which will enable learners at any age to excel in a 21st century economy. In fact, Jim Lindenberg, Class of 1993 and owner of Lindy Enterprises, serves as one of the moguls in this season’s episodes.”
 
“It’s been exciting for our Stritch team to work so closely with the entrepreneurs on Project Pitch It,” said Dr. Mark Gesner, Executive Director of the Stritch Hub for Innovation and Community Engaged Learning. “They represent the new wave of diverse business leaders needed to generate jobs, wealth, social and economic capital in Wisconsin.  Our University has a long-standing tradition of launching and supporting innovative programs and leaders, and these entrepreneurs possess exactly the kind of dynamic talent and drive that will help the Wisconsin economy thrive.”
 
Each episode of Project Pitch It features three entrepreneurs who will pitch their innovative ideas to a panel of Wisconsin business moguls, including Lindenberg, Peter Feigin, Jerry Jendusa, Deb Allen, Nancy Hernandez, Tina Chang and David Gruber. The executives will assess the passion and potential of each idea and then present awards with a total value of more than $30,000. Each episode also will include a “How Are They Doing?” segment that provides an update on an entrepreneur from the inaugural season.
 
The show also will air on WBAY (Green Bay), WISC (Madison), WKBT (La Crosse), and WSAW/WZAW (Wausau). For more information, visit projectpitchit.com
