Pitchfest 2020
Pitchfest 2020

Badass woman symbol entrepreneurs bringing
their best stuff

If there’s anything this year has taught us, it’s the value of teamwork. We wouldn’t have survived this year without some amazing partners, so this year our Pitchfest will be extra special, as we pay it forward by selecting some new women entrepreneurs to add to the Title Nine team.

If you make ready-to-rock products you’re ready to get out there, – apply for a chance to join us for our third annual Pitchfest, an event by, for, and entirely about woman-owned businesses.

What's in it for you?

  • The opportunity to pitch your products in front of an audience of industry leaders, peers and press
  • A pre-Pitchfest mentorship for finalists
  • A personal post-Pitchfest debriefing with the judges
  • Virtual or in-person events where you can meet and network with peers and panel members
  • Winners will receive a purchase order from Title Nine, and a catalog feature

Got what it takes?

  • Fill out the T9 Movers and Makers Pitchfest application between May 29th and July 1st
  • Submit a (maximum) 90-second video of yourself responding to the application prompt
  • Wait for confirmation! You’ll hear back by July 23rd
  • If selected, you’ll be invited to join us on September 24th & 25th, 2020.

What about COVID-19?

The safety of our teammates and Movers and Makers is our top priority. For now, we are opening the Pitchfest application as planned and hoping we’ll be able to meet the finalists in person at an outdoor event this fall – one where we can observe appropriate social distancing and safety practices. If that isn’t possible, we will do some improvising, and host Pitchfest virtually. So, either way: game on!
