Hang 10 Poké, a business idea of food-service entrepreneur Kean O’Brien, was the winner of the NEW Launch Alliance Pitch Event, held Dec. 1 at TitletownTech in Green Bay. AntiMussel and Starr Merrie Native Gifts took second and third place, respectively. The three winning entries emerged from a group of eight entrepreneurial pitches which had advanced from local pitch competitions held across Northeast Wisconsin last month.

Along with receiving prize money, the three winners will be invited to give an update to an even wider investor and business audience during the New North Summit, scheduled for June 8, 2023, at Lambeau Field.

“We have so many great new business ideas – across a wide number of industries – underway here in the New North region,” says Barb LaMue, president and CEO of New North Inc. “We have held the pitch competition for several years, and I have to say each year the range of business ideas and quality of the presentations continues to get stronger.”
