About the Event
Our official second stop on the BGV Pitch Tour is Detroit. We are headed to Detroit in partnership with Kroger to hold a pitch competition with the aid of our 3 Change Agents on September 29th. Our Change Agents are local business owners who are working on leveling up the local ecosystem for Black and Brown entrepreneurs.
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 local 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.
