Description

Want to help select the next great entrepreneurial idea in Memphis? Want to help students reach their dreams?

Join us on Thursday, December 6th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm to hear 35 amazing high school students pitch their entrepreneurial ideas to the community. Audience members will help in selecting thousands of dollars in additional funds for the student ideas.

From 5:30 pm to 6:00 pm, audience members will hear from 27 different students via elevator pitches at booths. From 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, 8 finalists will pitch on stage to the community for the chance at funding.

All proceeds from tickets will go to support future ideas launched by high school students. LITE has been able to grow from 3 ideas a year to 75 ideas a year due to support from the community. Last year, individual donations alone supported 66 of our high school entrepreneurs and their ventures. Imagine how many students we could reach in 2019 with your continued support.

LITE has been named one of the 5 most innovative grassroots organizations driving change in the country by The Renewal Project and one of the 20 ideas that can change the world by Forbes Magazine. LITE has helped over 2,000 students develop entrepreneurial skills in Memphis.

Starting November 6th, visit www.litememphis.com/pitch-night to VOTE for your favorite ideas to pitch on the Pitch Night stage! Voting ends November 30th at 11:59pm.

Free parking is available in the lots on the Rhodes campus. There are two lots within a one-minute walk to the Bryan Campus Life Center.

Dress is business casual.

Can I show up anytime during the event?

Out of respect to the students, we ask that you try to arrive by 5:30 pm. Since funding is at stake for all students, we hope that audience members respect that tardiness affects their ability to get extra support for their idea.
