T9 Pitchfest Outdoor Edition

Our 2020 Pitchfest Outdoor Edition may have looked different, but the participants did not miss a beat. From breakout-room workshops to Zoom-style team building, chaos and camaraderie ensued as usual.

Now, our quest continues as we seek to find entrepreneurial women* to join us this fall, as we host our 4th annual Pitchfest Outdoor Edition. A two-day event, Pitchfest Outdoor is an opportunity for badass women to share their stories, pitch their products, and join a community of Movers & Makers.

To learn more about last years winners and all the woman-powered fun, check out the 2020 Pitchfest Outdoor recap and our new Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition.
