Event Details

Black Girl Ventures works to create access to capital for Black and Brown women founders. The BGV Pitch Competition flips the traditional pitch competition on its head: we allow the audience to donate, eliminate the panel of judges, and empower the community (audience) to ask questions and vote for the winner. Donations are optional. Our partners include Google Cloud for Startups, Google Digital Coaches, and BICTech,

How does this work?

  • RSVP
  • Attend the event.
  • Listen to dynamic women pitch their businesses.
  • Vote with your dollars. Donate from $5+ to the idea you favor. Your donations go to the women!
  • All 8 women receive seed funding and/or resources for their business based on your donations.

The first place winner will receive over $5,000 in cash and prizes including:

  • Black Girl Ventures Grant (funds raised at the competition)
  • A meeting with an investor
  • A consultation with an accountant
  • Coaching with Shelly Bell
  • A podcast interview on The Brave Files PodcastCoaching from professional consultants from BICTech (Blacks in Consulting and Technology, a consortium of consultants from firms such as Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Booz Allen Hamilton, PWC, etc.
