The Venture Center's First #PitchNPint Event a Roaring Success

Saturday evening, innovators and startup leaders from around Little Rock converged on the Flying Saucer in the center of downtown Little Rock for an exciting pitch event, aptly named Pitch 'N Pint.

The event put on by The Venture Center is a fast-paced, casual startup pitch event to stimulate innovation in the community in a fun and entertaining way.

Over 20 pitch participants ranged in experience from novice to "veteran".  But all were even on the Pitch 'N Pint playing field. Pitch participants vied for the enviable position atop the leaderboard as attendees voted via text for their favorite idea.

The winner was awarded $1,000. All participants who braved the 60-second pitch gauntlet received a ticket to The Venture Center's upcoming 2 Days to Startup program.

Josh Ayres of Cart Delivered won the audience choice. Merger Match, a Venture Center pre-accelerator graduate and member company, won the judges pick.

Pitch 'N Pint was a great success by all accounts.  Thanks to all who made the event a rousing success. We especially appreciate the continued support of our friends at ABC Financial, our official sponsor of the program.

Congrats to all who participated and put their ideas forward. You're part of a fantastic growing startup community in Little Rock and we look forward to seeing you all in a couple of weeks at 2 Days to Startup!
