Don’t toss your scrap, pitch it
Friday, November 16, 2018 by Katy McElroy
The fourth annual [Re]Verse Pitch competition is right around the corner, and the city has begun accepting applications for organizations to offer up their scraps and surplus. Often, businesses and other organizations generate waste that ends up being sent to a landfill instead of serving an economic purpose. On the other end of the spectrum, entrepreneurs spend time and money looking for materials that can help bring their ideas to effect social change to life. The [Re]Verse Pitch competition attempts to bring these groups together, allowing organizations a chance to pitch their available materials to entrepreneurs, who then compete to develop creative reuses for the materials. The 2019 competition goes from February to April, and the deadline to apply as a materials supplier is Dec. 7. The application can be found here.
