HATCH pitch is joining with ProTexting to provide an engaging and fun experience for the HATCH pitch participants, audience, and fans. HATCH pitch will be holding two contests during the competition and everyone is welcome to join in the fun. The Social Media text to win contest will kick off at the beginning of HATCH pitch – 1:30pm CST, and will close at the end of Session 2 – 5:15pm CST. Before Session 1 begins, HATCH pitch will provide a short code that fans can text a mobile keyword to. For your convenience, you can send this to your fans - “Text COMPANY NAME plus the word Social (all words joined together) to cast your vote”. The spelling must be exactly the way it is seen in this list, otherwise the system will not recognize it.
The winner will be the team that has generated the most number of mobile votes. The Social Media Reach Award will be announced at the awards ceremony.
