Apply for The Venture Center’s 2019 Pitch ‘N Pint


Deadline to apply is Nov. 22

There’s still time to apply for Pitch ‘N Pint. Entrepreneurs have until Friday, Nov. 22 to apply to pitch their ideas during the Venture Center’s annual competition.

During Pitch ‘N Pint, a range of entrepreneurs will take turns delivering 60-second elevator pitches to a panel of investor judges and the crowd. While the entrepreneurs are pitching, the crowd will be voting in real-time for their favorite via state-of-the-art, text-your-vote technology.

There’s real money on the line for the entrepreneurs, too. The top prize – the Judge’s Choice Winner – is $5,000 in seed capital. The next prizes go to the audience winners. The Audience First Place winner receives $1,000 in seed capital, the second place winner receives $500 in seed capital and the third place winner receives $250 in seed capital. There is also a prize for the best ugly sweater – that lucky entrepreneur will receive a $100 prize.

To pitch during Pitch ‘N Pint, entrepreneurs must be an Arkansas-based business with at least $25,000 in annual recurring revenue. The business must also have been in business five years or less.

Pitch ‘N Pint will be held Dec. 10, from 6-8 p.m., at South on Main in Little Rock. Tickets for Pitch ‘N Pint are $10. Each ticket includes two drinks and appetizers.
