Meda is hosting the final pitches for the Meda $1 Million Challenge Powered by Chase on Jan. 30.

There it will announce the recipients of Meda’s $1 million in financing. This is the culmination of the inaugural Meda $1 Million Challenge, for which more than 200 minority businesses across the country applied. In October, finalists were selected from the 20 semifinalists who pitched at Traveler Companies in St. Paul. For the past three months, nine finalists have been working with Meda’s team, as well as other consultants, to improve their business and pitch.

The public is invited to join Meda, and the challenge contestants for the final pitches and the awards lunch reception. The pitches will begin at 8 a.m. followed by the awards reception at noon. Both events are at Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, 172 4th St. E.
