About the Pitch Competition

A total of 15 minority- and women-owned companies will complete a short presentation during one of three pitch categories that occur throughout the summit: food and beverage; product innovation and technology; and health, wellness and beauty category. Five companies will present in each pitch category. This fun competition gives attendees the chance to be inspired by other small businesses and learn about local brands!
A panel of judges will select one grand prize winner to earn $30,000. Plus, one business from each pitch category will be selected to win $5,000. Additional cash investments will be awarded and select finalists may be invited to participate in a roundtable meeting following the summit.
