About the Event

Austin, Black Girl Ventures Foundation is heading your way as the first stop of the 2024 Pitch Season on Thursday, May 23rd! We are coming to your city to throw a pitch competition for 7 preselected Black and Brown women-identifying founders in your ecosystem.

A BGV Pitch Competition is like ‘Shark Tank’ mixed with the elements of a classic ‘Rent Party’. At a BGV pitch competition, the audience decides the winner through Raisify.co, our voting platform, with their dollars. The winner is determined by a point system, not the dollar amount raised. The money raised goes to the founders in the form of a grant despite placement in the competition.

The prizes for the pitch competition are:

  • 1st place: $15k
  • 2nd place: $10k
  • 3rd place: $5k

As well as other non-monetary prizes to enhance their businesses.

Come out meet the BGV team, network with other founders, investors, and potential customers. Watch these amazing 7 founders pitch, vote with your dollars, and learn about new businesses to interact with. Light refreshments and drinks will be served. You do not want to miss this super inspirational event. 

BGV’s mission is to create access to capital, capacity, and community. This means we want to see ALL Black and Brown women-identifying founders win. We want to help these founders in the communities we serve, scale and grow their businesses, gain the capacity to hire in their communities, and social capital to meet those who will help them grow in partnerships, accessibility, and their industry.
