Event description

Description

Have an idea for a business? Want to start a service project? Want to make a difference but need a bit of money to get started?

At Bohnd + Oasis Pitch Nights, students 18 and under with ideas to impact their community can pitch them to an audience for a chance to bring them to life.

At this open to the public event, attendees pay $10 entry fee, receive a meal, and hear from students pitching their ideas. It might be a service project, it might be an app, or even a coffee social enterprise that raises money for students to go to college. The attendees will then vote for their favorite, and the entrepreneur with the winning idea will receive all of the money collected at the door + a micro-grant provided by 10% of Bohnd company profits!


BOHND is a reversible, athletic wristband company that uses a portion of their profits to invest in youth entrepreneurs.

OASIS VENTURE, a new initiative of the Oasis Center and Jumpstart Foundry CEO, Marcus Whitney, guides youth through a year-long curriculum in entrepreneurship with a specific focus on creating businesses that address social challenges. The program is a creative extension of Oasis's workforce development and service-learning programs and sparked by Whitney's passion for creating new pathways out of poverty. It is designed to immerse highly capable yet often marginalized young people in the world of entrepreneurship with a goal of youth creating and starting businesses that address a pressing social need.
