About this Event

Black Girl Ventures and Kim Crawford Wines have partnered together to support Black and Brown woman-identifying entrepreneurs with innovations at the intersection of wellness, self-care and technology with a virtual BGV Style pitch competition.

This unique Pitch Competition will provide underrepresented founders in the health, wellness, and balance Industry the visibility and access to the capital they need to catapult their businesses.

We will have a set of business experts and high-profile people as judges ready to give feedback, ask questions, and help the audience determine which will be the winning pitch!

The virtual format of the event allows for increased viewership, and Black Girl Ventures supporters across the United States will be able to tune in, submit their votes, and make donations through SheRaise.

Black Girl Ventures creates access to capital for Black and Brown women-identifying founders. The BGV Pitch Program flips the traditional pitch experience on its head: we coach entrepreneurs, host a live crowdfunded pitch competition, then connect them to community and professionals to support them on their journey.
