GFC Sponsors Peak Pitch To Give Businesses a Lift

March 23, 2022

On a sunny day perfect for spring skiing and snowboarding, business leaders and entrepreneurs from around Vermont met on the slopes of Sugarbush Resort for the 16th annual Peak Pitch Vermont Event.

Gallagher, Flynn & Company, LLP (GFC) was the presenting sponsor for the event that was held March 22, 2022.

At Peak Pitch, a shared chairlift ride gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch and tune their business plans to a variety of venture capitalists, angel investors, commercial bank officers, and other entrepreneurial advisors as they ride up the mountain on a chair lift. Peak Pitch combines business networking and skiing or boarding in a relaxed setting while providing a chance for entrepreneurs and investors to connect with the resources they need to grow their businesses.

GFC’s Elisia Laramee and Fran Briand shared a chairlift ride with entrepreneur, Henry Rosario, of OutPatch, a veteran owned business who pitched his idea and earned a mock million dollar check from our team. Rosario hopes to pitch to the entire room at the end of the day for the “Pitch-off”.

“Yes, Peak Pitch is a great opportunity for us to get in front of well-established businesses, but the real value is getting a closer look at some of the innovative businesses that will someday thrive here,” said Jason Hamilton, Managing Partner of GFC. “It’s a great opportunity to get an early read on what kind of business services will be in demand in the future.”
