Entrepreneurs are used to pitching their business idea to investors, partners, and anyone they might share an elevator ride with. In this competition, the tables turn. The [Re]Verse Pitch Competition is a social innovation program to help turn valuable raw materials that are currently leaving local businesses, non-profits, and institutions as waste into the foundation of new social enterprises.
During this final competition event, the [Re]Verse Pitch finalists compete for the Innovation Prize. Join us to find out who will be receiving an Innovation Prize to start a new social enterprise! You'll also have a chance to vote for your favorite pitch to receive the People's Choice Award honorable mention.
In the weeks leading up to this event, entrepreneurs have been working with mentors and have access to technical advisors to help create and refine business ideas reusing the byproducts from Austin-area businesses and institutions. Learn more about the competition at http://reversepitch.org.
This event is free and open to the public, but your RSVP is requested. Light refreshments will be served. Parking in the City Hall Garage (entrance on Guadalupe St between Cesar Chavez and 2nd) will be validated.
