Our popular Shark Tank-style competition, THE BIG PITCH presented by PNC is back for its 4th year. Save the date for November 18, 2017. Expect another sold out event with exciting pitches from some of Birmingham’s up-and-coming business owners and concepts!
Last year, we awarded more than $25,000 in prize money and even more in marketing, mentoring, accounting, legal, and design services. Thanks to our presenting sponsor, PNC, we’ll be giving away even more cash, all in an effort to help support and grow sustainable businesses in Birmingham.
If you’re interested in competing, now is a good time to register for our business development workshops, BIZ 1.0 and Create Birmingham‘s CO.STARTERS class.
