Event description
South Side Pitch is a business pitch tournament that showcases some of the South Side's most amazing businesses and entrepreneurs.

About this Event

South Side Pitch is a shark-tank style pitch competition that showcases incredible South Side’s businesses. In prior years, we focused on early-stage companies and business ideas. This year, we are switching it up and focusing on established businesses. We want to highlight how important South Side businesses are and the incredible companies that exist south of the skyline.

This year, our virtual pitch event will celebrate the South Side businesses that have contributed positively to the lives of their customers, employees, community members, or individual business owners. For this virtual event, small business owners will pitch in front of a virtual, city-wide audience and a panel of judges to share their success story and for the chance to win cash prizes. The winner(s) will be determined based on the judge evaluations and the audience votes.

We will share the link to the livestream as we get closer to the event. We will livestream the event on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ijclinic) and our Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC84FxvDJF_IMMKxwM9mQTXw).

South Side Pitch is hosted by the Institute for Justice Clinic on Entrepreneurship in partnership with the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and the University of Chicago Office of Civic Engagement.
