THE BGV BIG 4 TOUR - New York

Apply to pitch or RSVP NOW!

Community, Entrepreneurs and Investors,

Black Girl Ventures (BGV) teams up with Google Cloud for Startups to fund Black and Brown women! The BGV Big 4 Tour has scheduled stops in Atlanta (10/12), Chicago (10/19), DC (10/26) & New York (11/2).

Black Girl Ventures (BGV) creates place-based initiatives to provide access to capital for Black women entrepreneurs. Our mission is to use entrepreneurship support and training as a vehicle for poverty alleviation and wealth building. Black women founders are underserved, unbanked and underfunded. It's time to change that!

The BGV Pitch Competition flips the traditional pitch competition on its head: we allow the audience to donate, eliminate the panel of judges, and empower the community (audience) to ask questions and vote for the winner. Donations are optional. Our partners include Google Digital Coaches, Birk Creative, BICTech, The Brave Files Podcast, and Vickery & Co.

How does this work?

  • RSVP

  • Attend the event.

  • Listen to dynamic women pitch their businesses. 


  • Vote on the pitch you favor.


  • Two women receive seed funding and/or resources for their business! 


The first place winner will receive over $10,000 in cash and prizes including:

  • Black Girl Ventures Grant $2K in cash
  • A meeting with an investor

  • A consultation with an accountant

  • Success Coaching from Vickery and Co

  • A podcast interview on The Brave Files Podcast

  • Coaching from professional consultants from BICTech (Blacks in Consulting and Technology, a consortium of consultants from firms such as Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Booz Allen Hamilton, PWC, etc.

Pitch participants must identify as women and Black or Brown. However, audience participation is NOT specific to race, gender, creed or identity. Apply to pitch.
