Pitch and Pint

Thursday, April 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm • Organized By KC Collective
Online Event


It all starts with an idea. And a drink... Join us virtually as we spotlight companies in Kansas City.

KC Collective's Pitch & Pint pits entrepreneurs in a real-time pitch competition where winners leave with cash & everyone leaves with stronger connections.

Selected entrepreneurs will deliver their pitch in front of an audience for 3-minutes each. At the end of each pitch, the presenter will have a 3-minute question and answer session from the audience. Pre-selected judges will vote on each pitch with an additional bonus for the audience favorite!

Any entrepreneur, college age student, or community member with a business is encouraged to apply to pitch. Entrepreneurs interested in pitching should apply at

Beyond the fun and virtual networking opportunities, gain from these top Kansas City area entrepreneurs by hearing all about their rapidly growing start-up business success and the impact they're making in our communities.

Cash prizes are currently valued at $2,000 collectively for the top 3 winners. Big thanks to our amazing sponsor, nbkc bank for directly supporting Kansas City startups with these winning prize checks! Also, with each audience member's help, votes are tallied after all the presentations to reveal the 'Audience Choice' winner and more cash prizes.
