At the final event, the [RE]verse Pitch finalists will pitch and compete for the Innovation Prize. Join us to find out who will be receiving Innovation Prizes to start a new social enterprise!

What is the [RE]verse Pitch Competition?
Entrepreneurs are used to pitching their business idea to investors, partners, and anyone they might share an elevator ride with. In this competition, the tables turn.

The [RE]verse Pitch Competition helps turn valuable raw materials that are currently leaving local businesses, non-profits, and institutions as waste into the raw materials for new or expanding social enterprises. Learn more here.

The four finalists will be pitching their business idea on April 30th. An Innovation Prize of $10,000 will be awarded to one winner in each category. Audience members will also have a chance to vote for their favorite idea to receive the People’s Choice Award honorable mention.
