About the Event
We are starting off our BGV Pitch Tour in Chicago on September 22. We will be holding a pitch competition in partnership with Nike and for local Black and Brown Business owners from the area with assistance from our 6 Change Agent fellows that are also local business women in the area who are actively engaged in uplifting the current ecosystem for Black and Brown founders in the city.
A BGV Pitch Competition is like ‘Shark Tank’ mixed with the elements of a classic “Rent Party.” At a BGV pitch program, the audience decides who the winner is through Raisify.co, our voting platform, with their dollars. The winner is determined by the number of votes, not the dollar amount raised.
The prizes for the pitch competition are:
1st place: $10k
2nd place: $6k
3rd place: $2k
As well as other non-monetary prizes to enhance their business.
Come out, hang out with the BGV team and local Change Agents. Watch and support the founders pitching, network with other business owners and possible investors, and enjoy light refreshments. This is an event you do not want to miss.
Other activities to be announced.
