St. Pete Pitch Night

Background

St. Pete celebrates all things entrepreneurial! As St. Pete continues to grow and make strides to build capacity and density, we discover new and existing gaps that can be utilized as opportunities to keep our community moving forward.  St. Pete Pitch Night focuses on showcasing, elevating and seeding community-based businesses.

We take pride in our community coming together to support the entrepreneurs that are helping to make this the city that we love. With that, the Greenhouse and USF St Pete’s Kate Tiedemann College of Business are teaming up with Region’s Bank to launch St. Pete Pitch Night! St. Pete pitch night is the first of many to come, featuring businesses ready to make an impact in St. Pete – and beyond.

Who is it for?

As our inaugural event takes shape, we recognize those businesses, ideas and endeavors and want to help provide necessary connections to move to the next level. These entrepreneurs need to be celebrated for what they have already accomplished and recognized for where they are heading. The following criteria apply:

  • Scalable and/or innovative concept
  • In business for 4 years or less
  • Previously presented at 1 Million Cups

Want to present at 1 Million Cups to qualify? Apply Here!

What’s at Stake?

We will celebrate our entrepreneurial community while cheering on a friendly competition between five selected entrepreneurs for $5,000 in prize money. But the notoriety and community impact is cool, too.

Each participant will be given six minutes for their pitch and a six minute question and answer session.

Apply to Pitch!

We hope you will join us as we present the next offering to compliment our burgeoning ecosystem – St. Pete Pitch Night – focused on showcasing, elevating and seeding community-based businesses.
