Venture Center Pitch N Pint

2021 Summer Pitch ‘N Pint

This year’s Pitch N Pint competition is a collaboration between The Venture Center, Venture Noire, and ASBTDC that pits entrepreneurs in a real-time Shark Tank-style pitch competition where winners leave with cash and connections.

This summer’s event focuses on women, BIPOC, and veterans whose Arkansas-based businesses have been negatively impacted by Covid-19 and whose ARR or annual sales is less than $100,000.

Meet the pitch contestants here!

Entrepreneurs will deliver a three-minute pitch to three investor judges and a  (virtual) crowd of beer-lovin’ startup folks. Onlookers’ will vote for their favorite pitches, and their votes are tallied instantly via our online platform.

Once the pitching and voting is over –  we’ll award FOUR WINNERS!

1st Place wins $15,000

2nd Place wins $10,000

3rd Place wins $5,000

Audience Choice wins $1,000!

That’s $31,000 in total prize money!
