Jake Sloan – Naturally Austin – Executive Director
We are excited to announce our first Naturally Austin Pitch Slam on October 29, 2019
Naturally Austin PitchSlam with main prize of $10,000 in start up services.
As part of our ongoing commitment to fostering Austin’s innovation in the natural and sustainable consumer products space, we are hosting our first PitchSlam event.
This high energy pitch competition will showcase Austin’s top talent (you and your company) by providing a platform for exposure, networking and potential deal-making.
We want to highlight the growing number of Central Texas companies focused on creating natural and sustainable products by hosting an afternoon showcase open to the public which will be followed by our pitch contest with a grand prize winner award immediately following.
The pitch contest will have 6 finalists selected from the applicants and 3 wildcard finalists who will be chosen from the companies participating in the showcase. Each company will have 3 minutes to pitch and the judges will select a winner. The winner receives $10,000 in start up services.
And, it’s not an event without an after party with music, food and drinks.
“Central Texas’ potential for incredible CPG products is just beginning to explode, the Naturally Austin community is an important part of making it happen”, says Genevieve Gilbreath, Co-Founder & General Partner at Springdale Ventures. “The PitchSlam is one way we are connecting founders to potential partners and investors.”
Companies eligible to participate must be pre-seed or seed round stage in the CPG industry with an interest in sustainability or natural products, looking for build connections with local investors and partners.
As one of Naturally Austin’s premier sponsors, ePac Flexible Packaging CMO Carl Joachim comments, “Naturally Austin is filling a much-needed gap by creating a community for the natural food world of Central Texas. Their mix of educational, social, and community-driven events are quickly driving a connection between the brands in the CPG/natural industry and the connections, information, and resources those brands crave. It’s an honor to be part of such an inspiring group and we are excited to watch it grow!”
