THE BIG PITCH FINDS & FEEDS BIRMINGHAM’S NEXT BIG THINGS.
It’s so much more than an event. It’s a community of yaysayers who contribute knowledge, resources and horsepower to push great business concepts up a steep hill — faster.
Organized annually by REV Birmingham, The Big Pitch presented by PNC is a business pitch competition designed to provide technical assistance, mentoring, exposure and capital to Birmingham’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs. The Big Pitch intentionally focuses on helping lifestyle and creative businesses that make Birmingham a vibrant place.
The 2019 live pitch competition is Saturday, November 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at The Gallery at The Piztiz (across the street from Upswing!)—120 19th Street North. Buy your tickets now!
2018 marked FIVE years of this exciting competition! Hear what the experience is like from competitors, sponsors and service providers from over the years:
Big Pitch finalists must demonstrate…
APPLY EARLY FOR 2020!
Your Big Pitch application is an introduction to the REV Biz Growth team. Early applications give our team the opportunity to schedule a discovery meeting with you to learn more about your business goals and determine how we might help you achieve them. If you’d like to take advantage of REV’s workshops and one-on-one coaching prior to the deadline, we require you submit your application at least 30 days prior to the deadline.
While meeting with our team won’t guarantee that you’ll be a Big Pitch finalist, our free one-on-one coaching will help you strengthen your business and your pitch application. The earlier you submit your application, the more capacity we will have to schedule coaching with you before finalist selection. Early applicants will have the opportunity to supplement their application if their business has grown or changed significantly since submission.
