Meet John Romano the second judge to join the Pythons' Pit. “A penny for your thoughts, a nickel for your thirst”, is a catch phrase used by Nickel Brook Brewery, a line of beers made at John Roman’s Better Bitters Brewing Company located in Burlington. He chose to be part of the local competition because he believes that it is a great way to inspire youth to become entrepreneurs. He is going to be looking for applicants that are creative entrepreneurs. His philosophy is that if you believe in what you do, and you love it, success will come. Romano thinks outside the box and has a green apple pilsner, a gluten-free beer and premium organic lagers that target smaller market.

The Pythons’ Pit is a partnership between the Rotary Clubs of Halton and McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business. The purpose of the initiative is to give creative, entrepreneurial residents and high school students of Halton an opportunity to pitch their innovative business ideas or products to the Pythons. There is an investment pool of more than $150,000 that will be up for grabs during the competition. His interest in becoming a Python arises from his own experiences as a long-time entrepreneur. A dynamic and visionary leader, John will be in the Pit when finalists are put to the test on March 23rd 2013 at the DeGroote’s Ron Joyce Centre in Burlington.
