Budding entrepreneurs will get the chance to pitch their business ideas to a group of venture capital and equity investors with the hopes of getting their firms off the ground.

On Feb. 22, the "Fund My Idea" event will be hosted by the $2.8 billion Wright-Patt Credit Union in Fairborn, Ohio, along with Accelerant, an advocacy initiative with the Dayton Development Coalition, an economic development partnership serving 14 Ohio counties and The Entrepreneurs Center, a business development firm in Dayton, Ohio.

Similar to the format of ABC's television show Shark Tank, the Fund My Idea event will give local companies an opportunity to pitch their business idea and by the end of the event, the audience will take control by voting on their favorite pitch, according to Accelerant.
