43North is preparing for a full house Wednesday night.
More than 3,000 tickets were distributed for Wednesday night's final presentations at Shea's Performing Arts Center, putting the audience for the business plan competition at capacity for the first time.
The tickets were free. This year, 43North provided reserved seats for the event, instead of general admission seating.
43North notes that spectators can still attend the daytime portion of Wednesday's event, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Shea's. During that period, the 18 finalists will make pitches to judges, and the field will be trimmed to 10 entrants, who will make the evening pitches for prize money. Admission is free for the daytime portion; no tickets are necessary, and walk-ups are welcome.
