BGV Pitch Tour - Black or Brown Women-identifying founders in 7 cities pitching to win up to $30k to an audience that picks the winner.
About this event
We are wrapping up the Black Girl Ventures (BGV) Pitch tour in NYC in partnership with Jane by Johnny Walker on December 1st with the aid of our 6 amazing Change Agents in the New York City area where we will be having a BGV Pitch Competition. Our BGV Change Agents are amazing Black and/or Brown women-identifying founders who are actively working to uplift & grow the city's ecosystem for Black & Brown founders in their area.
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 the winner through Raisify.co, our voting platform, with their dollars. The winner is determined by the number of votes, not the dollar amount raised. The money raised goes to the founders, despite where they place.
The prizes for the pitch competitors are:
1st place: $10k
2nd place: $6k
3rd place: $2k
As well as other non-monetary prizes to enhance their business.
Come out, hang with the BGV team leads & Change Agents. Network with other founders, investors, customers, & watch these amazing 7 women pitch, vote with your dollars, & learn new businesses to shop. Light refreshments & drinks will be served. You do not want to miss this super dope event.
BGVs mission is to create access to capital, capacity & community. This means we want to see ALL Black & Brown women-identifying founders win. We want to help these founders in the communities we serve, scale & grow their businesses, gain the capacity to hire those in your community, & social capital to meet those who will help you grow in partnerships, accessibility & your industry.
