With many start-up companies attempting to expand their businesses through a variety of means, a new show on BNN called The Pitch gives these start-ups a chance to present their ideas to a panel of financial experts. Jeremy Gutsche, our Chief Trend Hunter at Trend Hunter Magazine, is one of the judges on this panel, providing these start-up company representatives with insight on the yeas and nays of their expansion concepts.

In this opening episode of The Pitch, Jeremy Gutsche asks the pitching individuals thought-provoking questions while giving interesting advice, referring to the key ideas required for a successful business to run. The CEO of ShockBugZ Richard Willis, and Barbara Tassa, the co-founder of of WeblishPal, were definitely convincing with their start-up ideas. Willis' business concept was to use radio waves to rid of bedbugs, while Tassa's hoped to connect English teachers worldwide through the web to teach others the English language. Though neither of the start-up companies managed to persuade the panel to give them the full green light at the moment, I'm positive they managed to attain a few great ideas from these experts on how to further develop their companies.
