InnoVentures: A Pitch Competition
InnoVentures is a pitch competition and fundraiser from Ventures, a nonprofit that helps aspiring low-income entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses. Ventures serves those in our community for whom traditional business development services are out of reach, with a focus on women, people of color, immigrants, and individuals with low incomes.
Watch Ventures entrepreneurs pitch their business innovations for a chance to win $5,000 in cash prizes to advance their business and break the cycle of poverty.
Microbusiness owners pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and community members including Rachel Marshall (Rachel’s Ginger Beer) and Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda. Twenty-two applicants participated in a bracket-style competition to the finals on March 26th, where five entrepreneurs are judged on community need, innovation, feasibility, and presentation.
