NGLCC LGBT Sip and Pitch Fridays

Friday, March 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm • Organized By Mid-America LGBT Chamber of Commerce
Online Event

About

Sip & Pitch is a chance to informally present your business to a panel of experts and your fellow business owners for positive, constructive feedback and new ideas.  If you have a 5 minute (or less) presentation with all the bells and whistles: great! If not: that’s great, too! Simply bring your “elevator pitch” and any messaging you’d like to work on with our experts. This is an open forum! Although these are mock pitches, these programs are a tremendous opportunity for NGLCC community businesses to enjoy:

  • No-cost constructive feedback to help you improve your pitch, whether a casual elevator pitch, coordinated matchmaking opportunity, or formal pitch for upcoming RFPs
  • Judgment-free, safe-space for you to practice your pitch. Everyone in the room wants to help you succeed and share best practices
  • See and be seen by representatives from NGLCC Corporate Partners and fellow Certified LGBTBE® companies seeking your goods & services. Participation is a great way to build relationships with key buyers and strategic partners while presenting to a national audience eager to see your innovations
  • Learn what other NGLCC Certified LGBTBE® suppliers do. You will likely be amazed to hear what some of your fellow NGLCC members are up to which could lead to ways for you to work together

Remember: You do not need to present a pitch to join us!
