The Venture Center’s annual Pitch ‘N Pint is coming back to Little Rock! Join us at Little Rock-based Apptegy on June 28

Watch as entrepreneurs from the community compete in a Shark Tank-style pitch competition for a grand prize of $3,000! Anyone can sign up to pitch their startup idea, product, or working business! Grab a drink, network, and walk home with some cash as you support Central Arkansas’ rising entrepreneurs and CEOs.

How is your pitch judged?

Pitch ‘N Pint will be judged based on these main criteria: information about the problem, value proposition, target market, and memorability. We want to see that you understand the problem you’re addressing and can clearly define it, and how your product solves this problem in a unique way, we want to know your target audience and how you plan to reach them.
And most important, we want to be impressed and remember your pitch! This could be through creativity, props, product demonstration, or your enthusiasm! We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
Tickets are $5 early bird and $10 the day of the event. Doors open at 5:30 PM and the program will start at 6 PM! The first drink is on us!
