GFC Sponsors Peak Pitch Event for Emerging Businesses

March 21, 2024

Skiing and snowboarding have some commonalities with the business world — you must adapt to the conditions. On March 11 and 12, 2024, business leaders and entrepreneurs from around Vermont met at the 18th annual Peak Pitch Event on the slopes of Sugarbush Resort taking in variable snow conditions and examining the opportunities ahead for budding businesses.

As in the past, Gallagher, Flynn & Company was the presenting sponsor for Peak Pitch. GFC staff Sarah Richards, Elisia Laramee, Deb Royce, and Mike Shapiro lead the Q&A session about common financial mistakes and missed opportunities.

Peak combines business networking and outdoor recreation in a relaxed setting while providing a chance for growing entrepreneurs and established investors to connect with the resources they both need to advance their businesses. The event provides a unique and enjoyable atmosphere for networking and pitching, and makes the experience more memorable for investors and advisors. “Peak Pitch gives GFC a good read on the innovation and trends developing within the regional business climate,” said Jason Hamilton, Managing Partner of GFC. “As we continue expanding our suite of business consulting services, it provides more clarity on what up-and-coming businesses will need to thrive.”
