Reverse Pitch finalists go virtual
Monday, April 27, 2020 by Tai Moses
The four lucky finalists for the fifth annual Reverse Pitch competition will be pitching their business ideas – virtually, of course – to a panel of judges tonight from 6-7:30 p.m. The idea behind Reverse Pitch, if you don’t know by now, is to create a product or service using only discarded, upcycled materials from an existing business. The goal is twofold: to inspire makers to innovate profitable new ventures and to keep perfectly good stuff out of the landfill. The opening pitch event was Feb. 10 and over the past several weeks, participants have been mighty busy attending online workshops and brainstorming ideas with their materials. The winners will receive two innovation prizes totaling $20,000. The public is invited to the finals; just RSVP here. And if you can’t make it tonight, a recording of the event will be posted on Facebook.
