Tulsa Pitch Competition Honors The Legacy Of Black Wall Street
Entrepreneurs can enter now through June 30th for a chance to win a $10,000 business grant
By: Black Connect
FeverPitch is an initiative curated by Black Connect that provides a platform for Black entrepreneurs and business owners across all industries to gain insight from and exposure to venture capitalists and potential investors, community and corporate leaders, executives, seasoned and successful entrepreneurs and professionals, disruptors and more. "I created FeverPitch to provide a funding opportunity for Black entrepreneurs who are excluded by the stringent rules that govern many pitch competitions and it's exciting to see the initiative grow as the organization flourishes,"
"As the United States observes the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, we are contributing to the legacy our historic Greenwood District and the spirit of Black Wall Street by providing an opportunity to highlight and support Black entrepreneurs in Tulsa," added Tyler Jackson, President of the Tulsa Chapter of Black Connect.
Submissions will be judged on viability, presentation, innovation, readiness, and impact. Ideas in development, as well as existing businesses will be accepted and considered. Five finalists will be selected to pitch in the virtual event on July 29, 2021.
Deadline for entries: Wednesday, June 30, 2021
