Got a "moonshot" idea or a business ready to soar? Perhaps you've sketched out a groundbreaking product or service, but aren't sure what to do next. Well, you're in luck!

Join us for Moonshot's 5th Annual Rural Arizona Pitch Competition—an entrepreneurial showcase akin to the excitement of ABC's Shark Tank! This year, we're hitting the road, stopping at 16 different cities/counties throughout rural Arizona. And that's not all—our tour stop winners will convene in beautiful Cottonwood, Arizona in August to vie for the state title and a grand prize of $10,000 in cash or $5,000 as the "Crowd Favorite," chosen by the audience.

Best of all, participation is entirely FREE thanks to our esteemed title sponsors: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, Arizona Commerce Authority, and APS.

Sign up now to compete in the pitch event!


At Moonshot, we're a 22-year-old Arizona-based 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to democratizing entrepreneurship. We believe that regardless of your location, everyone should have access to the same entrepreneurial resources as those in major cities. Our mission is twofold:

  1. To assist moonshot-thinking subject matter experts in bringing their products and services to market.
  2. To help rural Arizona cities and beyond cultivate entrepreneurial ecosystems that foster job creation.
