T9 Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition

Inspired by T9 Pitchfest Outdoor’s success and our ongoing mission to support women in leading, risking, and owning in all aspects of their lives, we are launching T9 Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition.

Taking place in May 2021, our First Annual Pitchfest NPE will focus on gathering together women leaders in the nonprofit sector: to tell us their stories, pitch their programs, and win some cash to build their organizations. We hope to add a whole new group of entrepreneurial activists to our team of women leaders.

Please sign up or help us spread the word–so that together we can continue to grow a larger community of women leaders, risk-takers, and owners.
